I had just a little setback. I hurt my hip and I don't know what the heck I did to it. All I know is that I went to my regular Saturday class and, while warming up, I felt a little pain in the hip area. But I figured I would work through it and do my class. I figured I might have been a li'l rusty since I had missed a few days.

Okay, so by the time I made it home from my class I could hardly walk. "Oh, no!" I couldn't believe I had injured myself and it would take about two weeks to recover. I, of course, went to the doctor. He said I might have been overdoing it, so I needed to take some time off. Then he said something that I was not too happy about. He seemed to think that not only was it my hip, but a combo of hip and lower back. I told him that my lower back did bother me sometimes, and he said that it was due to the shape of my body—with emphasis to my backside.

Of course I proudly told him all about my weight loss, and he thought that was a good thing. But then he said, "No matter what you do, your statuesque body is not going anywhere. It may get toner and even a little smaller, but it will not change a lot."

I guess those genes are strong and here to stay. In fact, I can already see it in my daughter's shape.


As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
