Good morning everyone,
So I have done it - tomorrow is Day 30, no slip ups at all. My clothes are fitting much more comfortably, I have more energy, I am sleeping better, people at work have stopped me and asked how much weight I have lost! But more importantly - I have cervical spondylosis (arthritis in my spine - it is in my neck and have 3 herniated discs as a result) and the pain has nearly completely diminished. The last time I took any type of pain relief was Day 4! Previously - took Aleve daily, reserved prescription stuff for really bad nights, but the pain was dull, constant 24/7, neck and down my shoulder with arm tingling. Now once in a blue moon I will feel a twinge that reminds me that I have this, but it is almost non-existent!
So that said, I plan on making some real life changes and the reintroduction will be important for me, so I have to pay close attention during this process. I am nervous though, as I don't want to go backwards - at all. I am typically an "all or nothing" type. I know I need to find a healthy balance, and that I can't spend my life food prepping, cooking and cleaning, lol ... but I am afraid of reintroduction.
I planned on doing the slow roll, but I also feel like I need to ensure I reintroduce one step at a time, so I am not sure if that is the right choice. Any words of wisdom?
Thanks in advance!
