Hi all, I have not being on here for some time, I have been struggling due to the pain
I tried to get through by persevering with hydrotherapy and and keeping active but I kept falling, I was around 125kg in september and I looked at myself and realised that my weight, was causing me more pain on top of the constant nerve and back pain.
So I decided to reduce my weight, not easy at all, I started slowly by reducing my food intake and also cut out red meat and all the sugars, I am on a journey towards vegetarianism, so far I have lost 12kg and it is working really well.
I am still in pain, but carrying less weight is definitely a benefit. I have increased my hydrotherapy to 3 days a week to help with the pain.
I just wanted to say I have found it helpful in many ways, I no longer snore and drinking lots of water has helped particularly before each meal, as well as juicing my kale and apple in the morning to replace cereals.
I feel much better mentally and physically, though the chronic pain still persists.
I am still on the journey but I am taking slow and steady steps.
Thanks for reading this post, will keep you posted.
