Is it a weigh in? Maybe!

Ok - so Monday this week I decided to move my weigh in day to Fridays to try and escape the perilous weekend food hangover. Obviously, I weighed in on Monday, before I made that decision - which was a lb on. So it's a bit hard to decide whether this is a "proper" weigh in, since it's only 4 days later, or if my first proper weigh in will be next Friday, but I thought I'd share this mornings scale encounter with you anyway.

2 luuuuurvely lbs gone.

Oh yeah.

Lowest weight to date?

Ah hell yeah!

Half a lb shy of my 50lbs gone, but I'm really pleased to see the scales moving in the right direction again. S'all good.

The Ongoing Saga of the Back Injury

After speaking to my physio yesterday, she decided that it would be best I went in to see her, and try and work out what's going on with my back. The verdict is that the ankle pain is a flare up of the sciatica that I had earlier in the year when the nerves in my back were getting pinched after ripping the muscles around my L4 / L5. So we've done more manipulation on my back, more ultrasound, and I've got my back taped up for 48 hours to help keep my posture correct and ease the pressure on my spine. It feels a bit weird, but I'm getting used to it now, and it certainly feels a lot more comfortable today, so I guess it's doing its job.

Kate has said that I'm best staying away for the gym for the next couple of days, but that gentle walking or swimming might be good to keep moving.

So that's me for the minute - I'm having a quiet weekend, partly to rest my back, and partly to rest my purse (payday is Monday, so it's the usual end-of-the-month poverty). Nothing too exciting happening. I was reading KK earlier who's been cleaning her wardrobes out again .... think I'd better make likewise as I haven't looked for a while and it's starting to look a little crowded in there again with all the new stuff!

One final thing - I found a fab new blog yesterday. Actually, more accurately - Nic found me! And I'm glad, because her blog makes for some awesome reading! She'd already lost 45lbs and her blog The Last Twenty documents the last bit of her journey to goal, but it's her writing and her committment that makes it so inspiring. So go read if you've got 30 seconds!!

Good news that the back is feeling better.
