I hurt my back simply by standing up.

I was 20lbs over weight, I sat on my ass all day, and one day the slight lower back pain turned took a turn when I stood up - I tore 3 ligaments in my lower back. It hurt worse than childbirth. I went to the doctor and he mentioned the difference in my usual weight, said it may have put a strain on my back.

It took a lot to wake me up. I had always been naturally thin. Suddenly I was 3-4 sizes bigger, and I thought I would just wake up one morning and be skinny again.

I started by giving up processed food. That took 5 pounds right off the top - then I moved on to all sugars, basically I switched to dark chocolate for a treat. Slowly but surely I made little changes until it all came off.

Good luck!
Better everyone think your a fool, than to open your mouth and prove them right.

Perception is not reality.
