Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

It's time to quit lurking and start doing...

Good to see you show up on my page. Yes, I like your farm work. Wish I was still back on the farm. Sorry to hear you are still suffering from your injury. Do you have a boot or something to protect it while you work? Don't worry about lagging behind. Just glad you are on there with me. I check your progress when I log my steps. Slow & steady wins the race. Well, not racing in this case. Glad this is a virtual hike after seeing some pictures of blistered feet. Yikes!!!
Steve's daughter, Jennifer, 10 year old Marina and 8 year old Rowan are getting here tonight. Summer is going so fast but enjoying the grandkids! Take care and try not to hurt yourself again.

What does your PT say about your knee? I sure hope you haven't damaged it further. I tell you-- the laser therapy has helped me immensely. She targeted my IT Band area last 2 visits and that made the big difference! Go to Litecure.com...that is the laser she uses. She said it is the best one. I know you are getting them, but maybe it isn't strong enough. Hers is 15 watt the strongest there is out there= Lifeforce EXP. Maybe you could have six successive treatments on your knee and that may help speed up the healing. Just a thought. Hope you feel better soon. emoticon
