I mentioned in a thread last week that I have lost over 50 lbs in the last few months and still have about 50 lbs to go. Well, last night I noticed I am beginning to get that saggy skin that comes with massive weight loss. So I did some reading up on the problem. Two of the tips that everybody seemed to give were to cut back the weight loss to 1 or 2 pounds a week and do some strength training to tighten up muscle tone. Up until now I have been doing mostly walking, aerobics and a little yoga for gaining flexability. Last night after reading I should be doing some strength training I decided to start out slow with a few situps & pushups then slowly get into some light weight training. I figured that being over 60 I have no business working with heavy weights but I never figured a few pushups would hurt anything. Wrong. I got on the floor and with the first pushup (probably the first pushup I have done in 30 years) I tore something. I lowered myself to the floor and found I had to strain a lot more than I expected to push back up. After just a couple of inches off the floor I got a very sharp pain in my pectoral muscle. I almost immediatly got a chill and started shivering which is something that for some reason always happens when I hurt myself. Well, all night I had sharp pains up the side of my neck and in the back of my shoulder just above my shoulder blade and just a little soreness around my pectoral muscle. This morning I got up early and called in sick since I do a lot of driving in my job and there is no way I can drive like this. I laid back down for about 20 minutes and to my suprise when I got back up the pain is 100% better, still very sore but no more sharp pains. I'm wondering if this might have been a dislocation that popped back into place on it's own? About 10 years I had rotator cuff surgery for a tear and this felt nothing like a tendon tear, more like in the muscle or joint.
