HI! My name is melinda I am 38 years old marryed for 15 years and mom of 2. My son just turned 20 and my daughter will soon be 13. Due to 18 surgerys and most of them on my Left knee, over the last 12 years I have gained weight I do not want anymore. Because of sever arthirtis I let my pain become who I am. For a long time I excepted that I had limitaions and overweight. But I don't want to be that person any more i dont want to be the one that has to say No I can't go for a walk today or play with my kids. After 12 years depending on pain meds to releive the pain or another surgery, 3 months ago I just started to walk 1-2 times a day in my driveway and now I am walking a mile at out collage track every nite. I found a set of resistance bands and I do a workpout every morning and I try to do aerobics 2-3 times a week, I have lost 4 inches around my waist, I can walk further than I could have ever done, my pain is still there but it is not who I am anymore, I am a wife, a mother and I am ME! I know I have a ways to go but I am happyer and I have started to rediscover the person I use to be!!
