well had my surgery and this is day 2 post-op.............i've amazed myself as well as others dr/physio at my progress.........had both knees scoped for as it turns out a torn meniscus with each knee..............feel a bit vindicated,because sometimes one does begin to beleive the pain is in your head espeicially when everone is unsure what the causes of the pain are???just knowing the causes makes me feel better............because of all those months in the pool .............it has payed off in dividends............have hardly and swelling and have greater mobility than expected????not sure what i expected,but it was not this..............i'm loving this to say the least..........don't need my cane or no need for crutches at all..............so am relaxing ,resting,elevating and levetating the remote.............that was day 1
day 2..............physio recombent bike x10min........walking x10min..........ice
+a machine(not ultra sound) x20 min................
spoke with physio re doing a walking marathon and she said as long as this continues............i may be able to start training in a few weeks...........have never done a marathon in my life.............so that will be exciting , something new to learn and a new goal to add to the list...........
day 3..........back to rest,relax,elevate and levitate the remote............did upper body srenght training.............20 min
hugs to all...........................lita

    Great job on your current weight loss. WooHoo! I am sure your after surgery down time will be no problem for a well seasoned "Heathy lifestyle' person like you. You will be able to move your arms after the surgery won't you? Lift maybe light weigts?

    Rolof:
This happens along the way. Don't panic. If you are doing everything right, your body, does have to adjust. I have had many stalls and I just had to believe right through them. Hang in there you can make it.

    Hey Lita! Keep your head up! Do you mind if I stick my nose in where it doesn't belong? What does your current program consist of? What sort of cardio/strength exercises do you do? How is your eating? How many calories do you eat? :)

    Lita, you are doing great. Don't be discouraged, part of the journey to a healthier lifestyle is learning new healthier habits. Slow and steady wins the race. You know what you are doing to get were your going, some people are just taking different routes and detours. In the end they may get to their goal but have they learned a healthy way to get there and stay at their final goal with healthy habits that they will be able to maintain? Remeber one day at a time, because every day brings on a new challenge.

well,with all the work in the pool that i was doing ....i expected a better weight loss(last 3 wks only lost 1/2-lb/week)even bumping it up a notch did not budge it either,so decided to try something else..........i joined the "calorie cycling "team and learned lots and lots and still don't understand it all and they plus the help of a dietician,started to eat differently and now the scale shows the changes ..........only started this past wednesday and on my weight-in day i'd lost 1-lb to my amazement..............needless to say i'm thrilled..................hugs to all..........lita
