X-Ray Results: A New Reason To Keep Going!

I feel better knowing what is wrong with my left hip, but the news wasn’t the greatest.

Due to the problems with my hip in my youth (read about it here) my left hip bone is not as strong as my right hip, and my weight bearing down on it has not helped these past 18-19 years.

If you have a look at the x-ray below that was taken yesterday you can see more clear than I could explain it.

My worst fear was that the doctor would tell me that I need to stop my intense workouts but he told me to keep going and do it better!

I need to stay off the treadmill and scrap the idea of joining the spinning class that I had planned into my workouts for next week.  I can still cycle but not too intense.

For my weights he asked me to keep to the machines as most of them involve sitting positions.  Up until now I rarely use the gym machines.  So tonight it’ll be back to the drawing board with Decembers new workout.

The doctor said that I need to aim at getting down to 80kgs (which is 175lbs) So I have rather along way to go, that’s another 80lbs away, kind of like going back to square one.  But I am still keeping my focus on 220lbs for now and then reevaluate when I get there.

The doctor gave me some medication that will help strengthen the cartilage in my hip joint but it’s not a cure.  This will only help delay the inevitable. I need to be sure that I am constantly losing weight, as this will take a lot of pressure off the joint.

But with a natural eye the future is bleak!  It’s a great thing for me that I have a supernatural God and that report from the doctor is something that I can give my faith to chew on. God heals! God never forsakes!

So what’s next, just keep going, I have more fuel for my mission, so I am going to get stuck in and make it happen!
