I am curious as to what everyone's limit is when lifting heavy objects. For instance, I never worked on gaining back any stomach muscles (no leg crunches for me!), so now I have a very hard time lifting any weight when it is out in front of me. If the weight is to the side of me and I can use my legs, I do pretty well.
Last night, long story short, I had to call EMS for my husband as I couldn't get him into bed. And, yes, I tried lifting waaaayyy to much. My stomach is really sore, around the stoma, and even my lower back. He is twice my weight.
I'd like to hear what your thoughts are on lifting.
