    I too have a "bad back". I had surgery a few years ago and it has been a struggle through all the drugs and physical therapy and of course, weight gain. I have finally gotten rid of the medications, through acupuncture and have been getting massage to release the toxins and trigger points in all my muscles. It is no picnic, but it is working! I went swimming today with my new spark buddy and we just basically tread water and talked for an hour. We are going to meet at LA Fitness for AquaFit class on Thursday. I have been advised to take Yoga for my next step, which LA fitness also offers. $7.99 a week and no additional fees for classes. It has taken me 7 years of agony, but I am finally on my way. If I can help or advise you in any way, let me know, unfortunately I have experienced every therapy out there. I am always happy to give my opinion. . .Good Luck!

    Hello and welcome to spark people! I read a comment you had posted on one of the polls where you had mentioned your back problems. I too used to suffer from severe back pain. I was wondering if perhaps the supplement that I used to help my back would help you also. I took MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) capsules for a few months. It is all natural and works wonders on pain and inflammation in the body. It is not expensive and can be found at health food stores. I recommend the Now brand. Just wanted to share this with you, I know how debilitating back pain is and am so grateful that I no longer suffer from it. Good luck with your weight loss journey. You have the proper tools here to get you where you wish to go.

    Hey there, stopping by to offer some support. I see you attend Curves 4 days a week. Were you able to go today? How was Thanksgiving? If you happened to go over in calories (like me) don't beat yourself up, just get back on track and tomorrow is a fresh new day to start over!
