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.

    I love the Wii fit yoga. It's the only yoga I can do. I have corprol tunnel syndrom in my wrists and I've tried to do yoga videos on the ondemand and it hurts to much to be down on my hands as much as they do. But the Wii yoga is great!! I love it! I'm so glad it made your spine feel good!! If it helps maybe you should continue it. I hope that it always makes you feel this good! I hope it gives you a pain free day!

    Take care,
