Hi Val. You are so right about ~INDYGIRL. When I joined I read a dailyspark blog written by her and cried. I thought if she can do this so can I. This is a very supportive team.
I exercise in the water and so far knock on wood I haven't had to have the knee replacement. I have had 2 rounds of the supartz shots and those have worked. My right knee is bone against bone. My left knee is giving me problems now, just starting again recently. It has been just about 6 months since the last round of shots. I blame myself because I haven't been to the pool since November 4. If you can join a Y or if there is an aquatic center near you and you can join, I highly recommend it. Good luck to you and stay in touch with the team.
I love SparkPeople

I lost 122 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.
Val! You have a great attitude which will serve you well!
When you get a chance, you may want to set up a Spark Page of your own. That way, other members can "Friend" you, leaving encouraging comments on your Spark Page and send you an occasional Spark Goodie. It's a good way to connect with others.
It's great to have you on the team!

So inspiring. This team leader Indygirl is so inspirational. I just got diagnosed with lymphyedema and this is forever apparently. My leg is swollen, ankles hurt swollen but its been going on for a long time. Now at least I know. My knees both need knee replacements and I am overweight. I saw how Indygirl is doing all she can to not go the knee replacement way. I am now joining that mindset and going to fight this -all of it. I browsed through spark before, but now I am serious. Thanks to Indygirl, thanks to Spark, its time for Change. Val
