Had a flare up this am. Yesterday was talking to relative who knows I am doing this program and asked how it was going. He said great keep doing it and then said "be sure to get that surgery for your stomach though". I had a moment where I was reminded of the diastasis I have from having kids-stomach diastais where you look like you are six months pregnant-weak stomach muscles. I have always heard that this leads to back pain. I am planning on getting the surgery later for cosmetic reasons but everyone says you need it for your back as well (stomach muscles no longer holding up back). I have heard this for years. I wonder if it became a self-fulfilling prophecy. I am terrified of the surgery as it is major. So... My 100% confidence has been shaken as I have been reminded that sit could be physical. Maybe this has always been deep in my subconscious anyway. Any advice?
