I am sorry about your knee! Are you going to have surgery or do physical therapy? What can and can't you do with your knee injury? I would try the upper body bikes, they have some at my gym. You hold onto handles and spin it like bike pedals it is a great source of cardio and should keep you on track! Also now would be a great time to focus on your upper body and abs!

I am so sorry about your recent injury, however, now may be a good time to go into a maintenance mode until your knee is fully recovered. SparkPeople's Registered Dietitian Becky Hand recommends for those recovering from surgery, illness or an injury hold off cutting back on calories. The reason, your body needs the calories and the nutrients to begin the healing process. This is not give you liberty to eat whatever, but when you concentrate on getting in some healthy foods, you may be back sooner than later.
I wish you a SPEEDY SPARK RECOVERY!

I'm really having a tough time. I've lost 33 pounds, which I am so excited about. However, I have hit my plateau at the moment and I also dislocated my knee while pivoting during aerobics. Any pointers on how to stay positive and any upper body exercises that will continue to burn calories. I realize it won't be as many calories as when I run, walk the treadmill or do aerobics for 50 minutes, but I need something to help keep me motivated. I can finally say I really miss being able to exercise. I actually am down about it. Thanks for any help or words of encouragement that you can give me.
