I’d focus more on your knee rehabilitation. It will take a lot out of you. Your therapist will work you hard and if they don’t then you’re not getting the best therapy. Not only do you want a better knee but also a functional knee. I was a nurse for 40 years with experience in pre-op, recovery room and post-op and saw people who didn’t have a fully functional knee because they were afraid of the pain. So didn’t work hard on physical therapy.

My knee surgery is FEB 13 and I look to the SparkPeople website and the actual community to keep me going in positive healthy choice direction through the next 3 months and especially the next two weeks. Your prayers, kind thoughts, and support will be welcome.

My long - term goal is to lose 15 lbs by my 70th birthday on May 2. My short term goal was to lose 5 lbs by my surgery date. I have exceeded that goal by one pound, for which I am very thankful. I am not confident that I can meet my May 2nd goal, given the fact that I will not be able to go to the YMCA where I burn over 400 cal / day.

Perhaps the more realistic goal after surgery is to accept a very slow (if any) weight loss as "success" and focus on success measures as: progress with knee function and staying within my daily goals related to calories, knee exercises, water, planning, and checking in with Spark People.

I thank you in advance.

Nancy
