Wow where to start.
Guess I should probably start from the beginning and work thru this with your help.
I'm overweight okay obese, and like a yo-yo I keep going up and then down!
My health has been suffering because of this and you would think that I would smarten up.........OH NO NOT ME.
I've got high blood pressure and have been on med's for over 5 years.
Went to the Dr. last Thursday for a follow up to find out what the exray's told her - I've been having serious trouble moving never mind walking and yes I do have Osteoarthritis.
First she took my blood pressure - 186 over 88 YIKES
Then she advised me that when she took exray's in April of this year to the new one's, my knee's had deteriorated dramatically and I needed to see a specialist as it was no longer a question as to wither or not I have knee replacements. The choice was no longer mine to make!! And there was indication of bone fragments as well which is also not a good thing to have floating around sighhh
So I will have to go see a specialist as soon as an appointment can be made.
And of coarse she had to add that the first thing they are going to say is "It is because of your weight!" Talk about adding insult to misery.
So now the question is
WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS?
Well my first reaction is to faithfully promise myself to watch what I'm eating, but history has taught me that this can be a serious problem - I either over watch or forget and indulge (I'm so weak) not to mention the stress in my life is also a key factor!
My second reaction is to walk, walk, walk and then walk some more - but wait a minute, wasn't that the reason I went to the Dr in the first place - I'm having trouble standing, keeping my balance and then trying to walk is so painful
I've spent the last 2 days going over every thing (saw the Dr on Thursday) and I still am at a loss as to what to do.
Thank you for listening
