Yes this is no lie. I was trying on a pair of 8 American Eagle jeans and was like holy smokes, I need a 6!!

And they zipped right up!!! emoticon

SOO Happy.

On a less happy note, went to the kne doc the other day cause I have been in so much pain (I have already had 3 knee surgeries)

He yelled at me for running.

No more running or jumping :(

    I remember how that felt! SO AWESOME!

You might want to focus on swimming (if you can). It'll keep you active without impacting your knees.

Totally random advice that you should feel free to disregard: 2 years ago I bought a pair of Vibram 5 finger shoes. I didn't buy them to run (although now I occasionally do). I bought them for walking. In the summer, I'll regularly walk anywhere from 8-14km a weekend in them. I went from having highly unstable knees and ankles (daily turning my ankle) to very strong ones. The Vibrams have helped with my stabilizers IMMENSELY. If that's not for you, all well and good, but if you start walking (even short distances) "barefoot", you may get improvements to support your surgeries.

  There are other exercises you can do and not blow out the knees. Congrats on the milestone. You are getting healthy, don't mess it up by trashing a part of your body that doesn't need to be.
