Robotics Update

Hi Everyone,

It has been a month or so and I have been doing the robotics exercising 3 times a week. Each session takes about 30 minutes. I have barely felt any left over feelings until this past Sunday. Ooops, I was really giving it my all and that was too much. I am now recuperating but have no plans of stopping. I am just taking a break for a few days.

I called my neuro for some muscle relaxers and since its been a year, I have to go in. So while there I will ask his opinion of these machines. Yes, you can just lie there and let them move you (and it feels so good) but they do say to resist the movement of the machines. That is what I was doing Sunday as hard as I could. Strange because on Monday I was fine. Tuesday I woke up with my left side having spasms and cramps from shoulder to feet. My left side was hit worse with GBS 11 years ago.

The real big good news is that they measured me and I have [B]lost 6.5 inches [/B]measuring 9 places on my body!!!!!! It doesn’t show that much in one spot, but I feel a lot more flexible and this is very, very exciting. I can bend over enough to dry my toes now! Lot of little things have improved.

So overall, I would give this program a 9.5 out of 10. The problem I have right now is my own fault. Go for it ladies 🙂

I’ll report again soon. And I would be happy to answer any questions.
