I'm doing better with the level of pain and fear lately, but I'm still trying to exercise more. I am 12 weeks postpartum and really want to lose some baby weight, but my back and core feels really weak and my back starts to hurt whenever I do squats or anything like that. I get frustrated and feel defeated by that pain and I know it's holding me back. I also know that every time in the past when I have gotten back to running and exercising, the pain fades, but this is different than it was before. Should I keep pushing through with the exercise? That's what I think my psychotherapist would say.
