“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
if it works for yout hats great!! be sure to eat foods high in calcium, though....a lack of it will weaken your bones.
glad you are now pain free!
Two years ago I was diagnosed by x-rays with arthritis in my knees. It started with severe knee pain after a lot of walking for several days when on a vacation. The pain continued after the vacation. It was severe and required prescription pain pills many days. It hurt to get up and stand up in the morning or after sitting for a while. My orthopedist told me to take up to 4 Ibuprofen at a time in leiu of the Rx which he was concerned I would get dependent on. He also said I would need to go on cortisone shots and then eventually have knee replacement. I did neither.
I started doing yoga twice a week and after six weeks was feeling better. It helped to strengthen the leg muscles and helped me relax. I still had some pain and after half a day on my feet I needed OTC or Rx pain pills. About four months ago I remembered a friend years ago mentioning that her Dad was freed of arthritis pain by going off milk and all dairy. So I tried it and after two weeks the difference was a miracle. No more knee pain unless I am on my feet all day and then two Ibuprofen will take care of it. That has only happened a couple times in the last four months.
This weekend I watched a PBS special by J. J. Virgin. She is a nutritionist who recommends going off 7 common foods to improve health as they cause lots of problems including arthritis. One or more of the other foods could be causing your arthritis. The seven foods are: dairy, eggs, gluten (in wheat, oats, and rye), corn, soy, peanuts and sugar. I would add chocolate to that list as it could also be the problem.
You can learn more about this diet by googleing jjvirgin diet. She has a website with lots of additional information. If anyone reading this has tried this plan I would be interested in hearing your opinion.
