I've had knee surgery and I dont ever want to have it again!

Monday, September 03, 2012

I'm ok and its fixed- long story short - but I have to keep working out and making my legs strong and LOSE WEIGHT. The key to better knees and keeping them (mine will need replacment in 5 yrs if I dont do what I am told) and maintaining a good weight. Great. I have been on and off the wagon SO many times, life just keeps getting in the way, depression after caring for and losing my Uncle really hit me (its better now and I have a grip) and now I have to get back on a wagon and try and stay there for this knee to get better. I am getting a trainer for 4 weeks once a week and if I am paying for that, I am losing something in the mean time. I cant go back to the gym YET but soon I can ....and then its back to WW as well, I need that, I dont know why i need that but I do, I was down SO much when I did last, so its time to do it we go - again....wish me luck!

    I know what you mean about no more surgery! I will try just about any alternative at this point not to have surgery again. The frustration has lead to some emotional eating but not out of control so, i'm trying to be mindful of that. Good luck with the trainer!

    Great attitude! It's frustrating and depressing to feel like you're starting over, but those feelings won't change things. Only you can and it sounds like you have a plan! Yay!
