Lisa - you have such a great attitude and I learn so much about acceptance from you. Thank you!

I just moved from "obese" to "overweight" on the BMI charts - which is great but all the ones I looked at show I need to be about 135 lbs to get into "normal". I try not to focus on those numbers and keep doing what I'm doing.

After being heavy for the majority of my adult life (I think the last time I weighed less than 150 was when I was in the military), I'm trying hard to pay attention to how I feel rather than focusing on numbers. PT is really helping my strength and reducing the pain and I am starting to be able to do some more aggressive exercises (actually used 5 lbs weights for an exercise last week!).

I really hope you are able to pinpoint where the problem is - frustrating to be doing everything right and still be having issues. But I have no doubt you'll get to where you want to be, if anyone can do it you can!
