Just a quick update. Here are my weights for the week since I have been counting calories:
Mon: 165 - Starting weight
Mon: 163 (Murphy's Law, it jumped up.)
So I've lost something. I have had some sort of a calorie deficit every day, just some more than others. Still plugging along.
I went to physical therapy yesterday and it appears the source of my problem is not the hamstring itself but the bursa sac that is between the hamstring tendon and the bone. Yup, bursitis of the butt! I have a very flat butt so this is always a challenge for me, can't sit on really hard chairs, etc. This makes traveling literally a pain in the butt as was evidenced on our recent Bryce trip. It was also an issue on our Oregon trip but I kept hoping it would "go away". I am going back to PT tomorrow and then I will probably go to see my doctor about getting it injected (cortisone). We are making plans for another trip and it would involve sitting even longer. What a pain in the butt!
Here is a short video explaining the situation and why I thought it was my hamstring HERE.
