I’m gaining momentum now after having 3 consecutive good days. I feel good, and it’s easy now to stay on track. Dr. Dan is so good at guiding me back on track. I have a lot of anxieties which play a role in my decision making regarding food, and Dan becomes the voice I hear when my anxiety flares up. Also, my eating, exercise, medicine, and sleep are so intertwined that if I’m not careful, it’s easy for me to return to my old bad binging behaviors.
I have fallen often, but I believe that I learn a little more about myself and my behaviors afterward.
Now, my responsibility is to monitor and track my behaviors. Control is the key.
I (of course) am still having back issues. Right now, numbness still comes and goes, but my anxiety about it has been reduced significantly. My recovery is a long and slow process, and I just have to listen to my body. I monitor numbness and pain. It appears that biking is the best method of cardio for me because I can bike for extended periods of time and not have pain or numbness.
Every time, here lately, that I begin a walking regiment, my back gets really sore. However, I refuse to stop walking for exercise altogether. I will work on it every week.
