Progress is a relative thing!
Saturday, June 02, 2012
Having lost 46 pounds and regained 22 of those, I have been feeling discouraged. Knee issues have been keeping me from exercising the way I like. However, I recently saw three people who I do not see often. They remember me when I was heavier. When they each told me how good I looked, it was like wind in my sails. I have been struggling to maintain, not gain. Their positive comments helped me realize my efforts are not in vain. Any progress is better than no progress. I just need to keep doing the best I can.
I started the second round of gel shots in my knees last week and had another this week. Already I am seeing improvement. Between this and the Celebrex, I have been able to begin working out again. I did the elliptical twice this week. No resistance, level one, but it felt great! I am back in the game!
