Hey girlies.......this is my first post here, please be gentle! haha
I need some help.......please!!!!!!! I was in an accident 1 year an a month ago, sustained several injuries, have 5 herniated discs in mid n lower back, 2 in neck, a rotator cuff tear, miniskis tear in knee n hip issues. I went to PT n Aqua therapy for the past 4 months, did help some but still have pain. Insurance company has currently cut that off. Over the time period of no working out allowed (10 or so months) I gained weight, was depressed etc. Since June have lost 50lbs. doing as much cardio as my injuries allow (currently walk 2mi.daily, 6x a week n at least 3x a week tai bo or other cardio as second session of cardio daily as well. I eat very clean, 5-6x a day, mostly higher protein, very low carb, no sugar, only small amt of "good" fat and went thru 1 "session" of clen, which helped move things along happily. I still need to lose another 25-30lbs. I have been a a standstill for the past month or so, lose 3lbs. gain 2, lose 1, gain 2....just up n down alittle instead of steadily losing again...I know little fluctuations r normal/water but I am becoming extremely frustrated, there is no way I would discontinue my quest but I need some assistance. Can anybody suggest anything to move this along keeping my injuries in mind. I work thru the pain, ice myself after everyworkout and advil is my best friend! Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

Its only hard if you make it hard.

bro, clinching teeth and working through pain is unwise at are testing your strength of character but meanwhile doing further damage to your injured areas...and loose advil - painkillers do more damage to your body than good. imo, should only be used in the shortest possible time in very extreme cases
it will be hard for anyone here to give you a comprehensive advise, given the scope of the injuries sustained and areas effected...your best would be to consult a qualified doctor or kinetics specialist
one thing I would strongly suggest is choosing cardio that doesn't stress your joints, like swimming or stationary running - very bad for damaged vertebrae
remember, that weight control is more a matter of diet than expercise...if you need to loose weight then match the diet, not cardio
