So, the pain is still here. I didn't get to do any exercise, unless you count grocery shopping. That is me hobbling along while leaning on a shopping cart. It was also only 15 mins. Sometimes this is the most I can do to push myself.

Yes, there was walking and yes there was exertion. But I pretty much don 't count doing something normal as exercising. But what do I know?

The main thing I see is that I'm not doing anything special and it makes me sad

    Hope your leg gets better soon. In the meantime, begin working in the SparkPages on a daily basis. Aim for at least 50 points a day (when I was losing weight, my goal was 100 a day). If you'll get 50 points, you'll interact with blogs, articles, food tracking, etc.

    Speaking of tracking, one of the best things you can do is track everything you eat. If you're not losing weight, there is a 90 percent chance you need to lower the calories you consume.

    If you can't walk, run, or bike right now, concentrate on weight (or body weight) exercises for your arms... burn a lot of calories with your core and upper body.

    The main thing is to track your calories and do something for exercise every day, even if only ten minutes.

    You can do it!

    Totally understand about leg pain. I have one new knee (8 weeks old) and need the other. Mine was also the result of a drunk driver, but it took almost 30 years to get to this point. At any rate, any exercise you can do-DO! I don't know what your non-weight bearing pain level is, but if you don't have a lot of pain while sitting-check out Coach Nicole's seated workouts. They're in the Sparkpeople videos. About 10 minutes, adapt to what you can do. There are upper body workouts too. And if you don't want to go get weights, just grab a couple of cans out of the cupboard emoticon it gives a little resistance and then you're feeling better because you didn't give yourself an excuse, you actually did something. I know, I've done it. And at 290+ pounds (I started in august at over 310) I've mastered every excuse there is!
