I have gone through 2 surgeries on both hands for carpal tunnel. The pain and numbness I had in my hands and arms is all gone. It is like night and day, my arms and hands were numb but they were in pain. You will not understand this only if you are suffering with carpal tunnel. The worst part of all of this is the nerve test I had to do. If you are ever told you have to have the test be ware it is painful. It does not last long it just hurts going through it. Just had the stitches out on my right hand and have to do light duty for 6 weeks.
I am so eager to get back to the gym. I will begin going back Monday. I still have a lot of pain in my right hand and still wearing a bandage on it. I wear splints at night so I don't accidentally bend my hands the wrong way while I am asleep. I will have to wait on lifting weights till my 6 weeks is over but I can walk and do the abe machine. I have lost 8 pounds and I am so excited. I felt that since I have not been able to exercise like I wanted and being out of town and eating food that I didn't not know the points. I kept a list of the food just have not been able to post. Hopefully I can get back on track. I have a month before we go on vacation in Tennessee and another wedding reception. This time I will focus on foods that I know the points and the ones that I am not sure eat smaller portions. I need to keep my focus on losing the weight and making life changes. I need to remember that this the way I need to be eating the rest of my life or the weight will come back.
