I am a professional Yo-Yo. I competitively swam my entire life and never learned how to eat right. I suffer body image issues like so many people. I am 36 years old.

Below is what I have mostly in my Thoracic Spine (bra line of spine)
Degenerative Spine Disease
End-plate Sclerosis,
Anterior Bone Spurs,
bulging disc
Lordosis in the Lumbar Spine
(A spinal hemangioma is a primary, benign tumor most common in the thoracic and lumbar spine. . This type of tumor typically affects the vertebral body, but also can affect muscles. The tumor has few symptoms, and is often found on examination for another condition. It is most common in patients aged 30-50. Hemangioma patients are closely watched for signs of compression fractures, neurologic dysfunction or the development of a soft tissue mass as a result of the hemangioma.

On top of that I am blessed with Fibromyalgia/CFS(chronic fatigue), put that together like a sandwich and I have depression on the side. I hide it well, I am funny and loving and would give the shirt off my back to those I love. I am married and happy, we have 3 wonderful boys and we are huge outdoors people. I was told by a neurosurgeon that the only option for me was to drop off 50 lbs.

So you see, it's not only about my self-image, my self-esteem, it's about my spine.

My spine hurts.

    You are so welcome and thanks you for the kind words about my family. You write like me so I understood exactly what you were saying. it's not babbling, it's writing things from your head down so fast because you don't want to forget it.
    In any event, I will be better as time moves on and you will get stronger and healthier. i'll be with you. Some people have never had a weight problem (curses!) but I am not one of them. I will spend the rest of my life with this cross to bear and hopefully I will encourage some people along the way.

    You are close to my heart...I soooo feel your pain. We have to do this for our bodies and our children; so they don't have to go through this when they get our age. We can do it...wish I lived closer to ya, but I can tell that I don't by the snow in your pics!!! lol... love the fact you love nature!
