Three things to try:
1. Instead of thinking of lunging forward, take a smaller step and think of your hips lowering. What I mean is, instead of the force of the lunge propelling you forward in to your knee, think of sinking the hips DOWN straight towards the ground.
2. Instead of lunging and bringing the foot back to starting point, try this: Step one foot in front of the other, and stay there. Do not move your feet. Simply bend your knees and sink hips down into the lunge, and do a few reps like that WITHOUT MOVING THE FEET. Then switch and do the other side.
3. Try doing #2 while placing your hand on a chair back next to you for added support.
