Hi fellow Mighty Health friends!πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ I am Peggy & will turn 65 in August! I have been happily married for 43yrs this Nov., have two children, & 4 precious grandchildren I adore! Our two oldest are 18yrs & the FUN we have had thru the years, I don't want to lose that with low quality of life due to my weight & health problems! My quality of life changed suddenly when I began having terrible lower back PAIN, & could only lay down for 1-2hrs before awakened screaming from terrible nerve PAIN down my legs lasting 15-30mins.!! It was 15mos., & SO many different Drs & tests, before a diagnosis was given that my sacrum was loose causing the nerve pain!😭 Could of been too large of babies (9 & 10lbs I gave birth to naturally!) or an injury to my tailbone thru the 60yrs of life! I was always active, so not even able to walk much has been BEYOND HARD ON ME!!πŸ˜ͺ I went to a pain clinic, & got steroid injections into my back guided by an X-ray to my SI joints right before Covid hit, & after a week I could go on mile walks everyday for 3mos.!!πŸ˜πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ I sleep with an ice pack on my lower back every night, still wake up all thru the night, & struggle with sitting places without pain, walking too far in a store I have to suddenly sit down, & standing still is the hardest for me!😫 Not moving, as little as possible so I am not in even more pain, was bringing many other health issues ~ the hardest one being edema with swelling of my legs/ankles/feet!!πŸ˜–πŸ‘ŽπŸ» And, with diabetes being harder to control it was serious!! MY WHY is I either eat better to help my inflammation, & diabetes, or I loose more quality of life, or my life!!!! I have been SO determined I won't allow myself to eat any sweets, or chocolate (having a strong addiction to sugar!!😝 🍫) And, stopped milk & white 🍞, πŸ•, & 🍝!! Being VERY strict I have lost -9lbs in 2wks so far!!!πŸ˜ƒ I can't wait to get my first -20lbs OFF to help my inflammation...but plan to go all the way to lose -100lbs.!!!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ» Let's DO THIS TOGETHER!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‰
