I found out today that I probably won't be able to get my other knee replacement done until late this year or early next year. My knee hurts a lot and I even tried a Sinvisc injection which didn't help much, if at all. I also have a really fancy, expensive brace but it doesn't really help a lot. I have been limping and so, of course, my back and neck are hurting now, too.
I know my knees felt better when I was only 180 pounds, so I have incentive to get my weight down there again since I can't have the surgery to fix the worn out knee.
Another good thing about getting down to 180, is that my knee replacement will last longer, too. My actual goal weight is 150.... perhaps I can get there by December and that will make recuperating from the second knee replacement easier.
I can think of a lot of good things regarding carrying around less weight....
