It does. Food is an area of struggle. Working on it! Thank you for taking the time to talk with me and for the added motivation!

Hi Darcy

I'm glad you stopped jogging, since that's a higher impact activity that will put more strain on the knee joint. Here's an article you might find helpful:

The good news is that even if you can't exercise as much as you'd like right now, the majority of your weight loss progress comes from what you eat- not how active you are. So if you can be careful with food choices and track your food daily, you can still lose weight consistently.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

@SPARK_COACH_JEN walking outside, to videos inside and some bodyweight exercises for strength. I don't have access to a pool right now. I was jogging some but found that aggravated the knee further so I stopped until I can shed some additional pounds.

Hi Darcy

What kind of cardio exercise are you doing? Do you have access to a pool? Swimminng is a great option because it's a good workout that's easy on your joints.

I am having knee issues. It isn't horrible but they ache and things like getting up and down from the floor, lunges, are difficult. I am certain this is because I've been overweight most of my life which puts added strain on the knees. I feel like it will improve if I am more active but I find I shy away from doing the things that cause discomfort when it comes to my knees like lunges. Squats aren't an issue but I have more experience with them.

Any guidance or advice is appreciated. Thank you.
Darcy
