WHITE-GREEN, thank you. My mom has had a hip replacement, my mom-in-law has had TWO and my mom should have both her knees replaced, but can't afford to. My mom is old and frail and never exercised or prioritized her health when she was younger. I will absolutely take this as a higher value thought, than whether or not I look "good". You are right. Function is better than form and I want to be able to spend many healthy, active years being able to play with my son. Thanks for the reality check.
