You have received some very good advice and I agree with it all. Now it is up to you to decide to follow through and take the advice. Chair exercises are great and you will feel better for it. You are in the right place for support. Good luck.

I have several friends that have had knee replacements. They say the best thing you can do before hand is to learn exercises you can do without putting weight on your new knees. Your body needs time to heal. One lady said the Dr recommended a stationary bike another said her Dr. said water exercises or chair exercises. Anyway they all said exercise that took the weight off your knees.

Welcome! Don't be discouraged, be motivated! Take a healthy eating Challenge, find some seated exercise videos here and on YouTube and do the exercises you can. Improvise, adapt everything to your needs. Those two new knees will fare far better if you prepare yourself for them ahead of time. You can do this.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates

I was 19 lb. lighter last July. Then, I went back to old eating habits. Now, I lose 2 lb. and gain one back. Then the scale doesn't move. I also have been sidelined due to waiting for two total knee replacements. Discouraged today.

I can, I will, I believe in me.
