Hi Day 1 - wanting to hear from anyone with previous spinal operations/issues
Background is two previous spinal op's 12 years ago and major abdominal surgery 1 year ago. So my core muscles aren't in good shape but I'm trying. I've lost 1 stone 12 lbs in 10 weeks with calorie counting and power walking, Today I included day one within my 2 hour power walk and my back held up so I'm over the moon. I know there is a long way to go, but I'm hoping. My power walks weren't stretching me anymore whilst the lbs dropped off so I've decided to up the anti and go for it.
Not the right week to do it really as I'm on holiday next week, but will simply start week 1 again when I'm back.
Current physio isn't convinced it's the right thing, but in my mind I have to try otherwise I'll never know. So well see. Good luck to every one who has already kicked off.
Just another 1 stone 5 lbs to go and by then I really hope I'll be ending week 9. I plan to keep up with power walks in between, hoping that works.
