Recovery from atrophy...

The first response: speak with your neurosurgeon. Medical advice counts here.

Second response: It will take time. Decompression of nerves does not translate into immediate recovery of the muscle bundles because some of the axons (the processes that go from the nerve bodies out to the muscles) have have to regenerate. Depending on the extent of the compressive injury, it may be months. Patience and fortitude count here.

Third response: find an advanced exercise specialist--a trainer with education and experience in rehabilitative exercise. S/he can design a program for you that will make best use of the recovery period. Intelligent coaching counts here.

Fourth response: use daily opportunities to best advantage. Whenever possible, use the affected side in preference to the unaffected side. Push yourself in small ways as often as possible. Do not allow continued disuse to retard your recovery.

Good luck...

Scales...

If you are committed to a fitness program, bathroom scales are superfluous and will cause all sorts of unnecessary anxiety. What matters is the percentage of the body that is muscle versus that which is fat. How your clothes fit is a much better arbiter than the number on the scale.

If you insist on purchasing a scale for home use, I recommend a kitchen scale for weighing food portions. Will make a much greater contribution to your wellness program.

Arthritis and exercise....

The evidence strongly weighs in favor of exercise as a key strategy for relief of arthritis. Increasing the strength on supporting tissues decreases the variable load carried on joint surfaces. Poly is 100% correct in her approach--optimize medical treatment and continue to work towards optimal fitness, including use of the affected joints and limbs.

Gina I'm with Poly, do NOT think of how slow you are going congratulate yourself on what you have done! Remember, a marathon starts with one step my dear friend. This takes patience with your body. We don't get overweight in one day and we most certainly do not get fit in one day. You are GORGEOUS so love yourself and be proud. On that note I'm off to jog!

My short term goals can't involve weight. Instead I make them about how many times I go to the gym that week. When I was setting my goals with how many pounds to lose, I was getting discouraged and then I would give up. I apparently don't have any water weight and it is nothing but fat. It is painfully slow but I know I will get there eventually.

Thanks...I go to Dr. next Tuesday for this. Until then, will keep up w/ walking and biking and elevate it when I'm home. I hate meds, so any other alternatives are most welcome. I know about the weight thing, and am back to working on that part. Have dropped about 5 or 6 pounds this past month and keeping them off. Sometimes frustrating that it's slow, but I'd rather lose it slow and keep it off than yo yo back and forth.

Thanks, Gina

Poly and any others who know better than I do,

I have a bad knee injury (long story, and not from anything fun), arthritis, etc., blah blah blah. What should I be doing in the way of exercise for this? Thanks. I'm back from all our traveling and healing from an illness, and more than ready to get to the gym regularly again.

Thanks. Gina

He was (and maybe is still...if he's been reincarnated) a pretty amazing guy and way ahead of his time...or maybe teleported, who knows. Hehehehe....oooooo.

The 80/20 diet is very healthy and clean. I am trying to little by little take on some of the concepts and make them a real part of my eating healthier. I just learned of it though on Sunday, so it'll take some rethinking and rebuying and relearning.

Hi Poly, What do you know about the Edgar Cayce 80/20 diet that deals with 80% alkaline foods in ratio to 20% acid? thanks. I just discovered this concept and it makes a lot of sense and incorporates most of the things you tout to eat "cleanly."

I was simply stating the science behind the morning fasted workout.
