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!

I have been doing exercises I found on Youtube about strengthening the thighs and other leg muscles that help with the knees. Just look up exercises for bad knees and there are a slew of them! I want to put off surgery as long as possible. So far it is helping! I can't do as much as I used to-like getting on the floor on my knees or stooping/bending over too much, but that is ok. I can still walk and ride bikes and do most chores!!.... that is all that matters to me right now. Better than surgery!
I keep seeing that lighthouse on your page and makes me think of it. Still haven't made it there yet. Hope to next month...hope to plan a long weekend up there..since haven't been in the panhandle area that much. emoticon
