SunnyDonna is going to get better

I am a 50 yr old that is tired of pain. I have 3 grandsons that I want to enjoy as they grow and as for now I have to be sitting just to hug them. I can not walk or stand for very long at all and doing strenuous activity is a big no no. To add to my previous intro.

I am a 50 yr old that is tired of pain. I have 3 grandsons that I want to enjoy as they grow and as for now I have to be sitting just to hug them. I can not walk or stand for very long at all and doing strenuous activity is a big no no. To add to my previous intro. I am now 52, have a new granddaughter so really need to get myself in better shape. Was told in Aug that I need a complete knee replacement, unfortunately still being over 200lbs the VA will not approve it. Have to be at a certain BMI so I have recently been doing as much moving as I can to lose that dreaded last 10lbs to get to the 200 mark and once I am there I plan to continue to keep going till I am at a point that I don't feel extremely burdened. My only real problem is walking can be a painful experience in and out of water. Knowing what is wrong with the knee has not helped much but at least I know what that pinch I feel is.

My Goals:
I would like to lose weight to feel better and to make life easier. I am tired of being tired all the time and not being able to move much really does not help.

My Program:
I go to the YMCA almost every day to water walk. Began a Slow and Easy Aquasize class this week, Twice a week adding easy exercise should be another way to help me reach my goal and to learn how to live with the pain.


Personal Information:
I currently live in Pittsburg, Ks. which is in the S/E corner of Kansas only 30 miles from Joplin MO. When the tornado tore up Joplin I lived only 6 miles away.
I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.
