Knee still hurts

Monday, September 02, 2013

I have been experiencing right knee pain, catching, and snapping sensations for over two months now (after doing a 90 degree wall squat.) Stupid me, why did I do that?! The acute, "keep me up all night" pain has subsided, but get sharp pain if I twist it even a tiny bit in either direction. Think I might need a knee arthroscopy. Maybe there's a piece of torn meniscus getting caught in there. In the meantime, in an attempt to keep up some calorie burn and tone muscles, I am doing upper body exercises on my bow flex machine in addition to wall push ups and plank exercises until the knee issue is resolved. Lost 6 pounds since last weigh in and even maintained it on vacation. Down to 262 now and can't wait to get into the 250's. Haven't seen the 250's in a long, long time!

    Good call! Play it safe and see the doc. Focusing on the rest of your body is a great idea. You don't need a lot of cardio to lose weight, but you do need to keep your strength up. You can probably even do some conditioning of your leg muscles and hip joints by using isometrics that don't involve the knee.
