I'm actually pretty young for this problem I know, but here I am none the less. I have noticed a significant drop in my pain levels since starting Atkins this time. Counting the first time I was on the diet (I know, way of eating, not diet) earlier this year and this time I'm about 2 pounds shy of loosing 50lbs.
My question is, do any of you have arthritis in your upper spine? If so what do you do to, I guess extend you day would be one way of putting it? I had to go back to school due to my knees being destroyed from lifting and steel grating and also my spine. By the time I get to the end of the day I can think of little more than getting home and laying on the heating pad and taking the stress off of my spine. Also, has anyone noticed a significant drop in pain on your spine once you approached what your weight is supposed to be?
It's amazing how detoxing yourself from all the sugars and bad carbs can really make you feel so much better! I am sorry if this makes little sense or seems choppy, I've only had one cup of coffee this morning!
