I have enjoyed what I am calling my "spa day." Got up early enough to finish up schoolwork with the kids before I headed out for my day long training session at Health & Welfare. Great "spa" huh? For a long day of taking in information the time actually went quite quickly and I wasn't ready to be heading home. I enjoyed my 30 minute lunch break at Subway and after the training I scheduled my test for the last Monday of July so I can get it done as I don't need a whole lot more studying since I did so much on the front side. I then stopped to buy french bread to go with the spaghetti we were having for supper before going home.

I was home for about three hours and then I was off for part two of my "spa day." Monthly Massage!! I was giving this particular therapist one more chance and knew I'd switch if it was again so painful. Tonight was much better so no switch necessary. My lower back is feeling so much better.

Tomorrow Isaac will have his morning with Meg for habilitative therapy and then at some point in the afternoon we are all going to Tim's company "event" at a local water and fun park. Kids are looking forward to the water slides and games. I for one was in tears earlier because I have gained so much of my weight back that I questioned limitations on the slides and I was right. Some I just can't do now and it made me angry and sad. Just a year ago I didn't have to think twice about that type of thing and here I am... the one missing out. There are some things I can do at the water park and I will, but it really did depress me and I am going to use it as a reminder of why I must get the food piece in place now and not give up!

I was considering the gym tomorrow but I would have to go very early to be home in time to make sure Isaac is ready to go with Meg at 8. If I don't make it I will just go Saturday and Sunday instead. Must reach my goal!

    I know what it is like to fight back tears because the weight is all back on. It is a struggle but we can all work together and try to beat this for our health. Hope your back is much better today. Have a great weekend.

    a lifelong battle against weight gain! I am there with you! It is SOOOOO easy to put the weight back on and once our bodies have established a set point they constantly try to get back to that weight! BUT I will establish another set point and I will win!! We can do this!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad that your back is at least feeling better, in spite of your other disappointment!
