Which came first, the eating or the exercise?
Wednesday, May 29, 2019
On previous work to lose weight, I've focused on the food. Eating less, cooking smarter. One time (successful at the time) I paired my eating with exercise. But, I had never started with exercise.
This time I did. Last June, I started working out with a trainer twice a week. My goal was to strengthen my body in anticipation of a knee replacement in a year's time. In January, I decided to be very intentional about how, what and how much I was eating. The results are very gratifying. I'm down 28 pounds in 138 days. I miss exercising if I'm away from it.
Best of all, the knee replacement is looking like it will be out a couple more years. My muscles are supporting it better, and it's carrying much less weight. The pain is so much less. I can wait.
