You say you have RSD. What is RSD?
RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) is a permanent, and progressive for of nerve damage that affects the Sympathetic nervous system. It is the most painful form of chronic pain. I was diagnosed with RSD on December 14th. The RSD started after I had back surgery to repair two discs in my back.
Why are you blogging about your weight loss?
There are two reasons really. The first reason is so that I can keep myself accountable. While I also use other websites to help me achieve my goals, they do not let me express myself as I need to. Writing about challenges in your life is one way to tackle them head on.
The second reason is so that I can show many others out there that with dedication and commitment anything is possible. I cannot wait to share my weight loss story with millions of others who previously thought it would be impossible for them to do the same.
