Okay! Starting over, after getting some test results back.

I need to be on a low-fiber, low fructose diet. I can no longer run or do situps or crunches. No weight training. And I am not supposed to do more than 15 minutes of cardio a day.

Wow. Weight loss is going to be a challenge! I'm really, really going to have to watch my diet.

Member Since: 3/24/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,960

My Goals:
My main goal is to cultivate moderation, peace, health, and spirituality. I also want to get down to a normal BMI, and I would like to reach a goal weight of 140 pounds. At that weight, I would be a size 8 or 10. I want to look good and feel good in my clothes again! I want to achieve energy and endurance, core strength, improved sleep, and get my sexy bod back.

My Program:
Lose 42 pounds at a rate of about 2 pounds per week.

Weigh 140 pounds.

Be a size 10 (or 8?).

Heal my back (2 herniated discs).

Increase Core Strength.

Follow my new special diet.

Create a Home Yoga Program.

Walk 15 - 30 minutes per day.

Personal Information:
I have an allergy to fructose, Barretts Esophagus, 2 herniated discs in my lower back, stomach ulcers, a bile problem in my intestines following gallbladder surgery, irritable bowel syndrom, and ulcerative colitis. SO! It is really hard for me to follow my special diet and lose weight too! But I am determined to do it and to be healthy.

Other Information:
I am a total bookworm. I love spiritual books, Eastern philosophy, and good fiction. I am a huge fan of the author Echkart Tolle,". I am currently working on a master's degree in criminal justice and preparing for a PhD program in clinical psychology.

    Hi, and Welcome to SP and the IBS Divas and the Acid Reflux teams. You do have lots of challenges ahead. SP has so many resources for you to take advantage of. Please make use of them. Have you though about getting a yoga dvd? I just ordered one for myself from Amazon. It's something to think about until you get back on your feet.
