Week Before Surgery

Next Thursday my left knee will finally be "scoped!"

It is raining today, so it's stiff and throbbing. It sucks having a weather defective limb at 30.

My knees were more like the knees of a 70 year old because I spent the previous 25 years being over-weight / obese.

After I had my right knee done it took awhile to heal, and now it is in fantastic shape! But my left leg is still "crunchy" and holding me back.

I am really looking forward to having a working pair of legs again! :)

My Pre-Op physical is tomorrow and I have to get on the Doctor's Scale. It is going to be bad....

My weight has taken off like a rocket this year because my limited mobility plus lots of Stress/Greif Eating.

Since my first knee surgery last November I have gained 30 pounds. (About 3 pounds gained each month.)

It is very very very very very frustrating because I am doing what I can with what I got, and I am still slowly gaining weight.

Even being consistantly active and reaching my goals, I am still up 3 pounds this month!!! (My weight this morning compared to the weight on the 1st.) but that weight gain could be from my pending period. I hope it is just period puff and my weight will finally TURN AROUND!

Hi Jess! I too have had that struggle with doing all I can and not getting the result I am aiming for....but don't give up! You already are successful!! You are making wise and healthy choices! That's what this deal is all about! Stay focused on the goal to be healthy and everything else you desire will come in its own time. You are such an awesome inspiration to all of us. Much love and healing to you! Teresa in Texas

just keep making the best choices you can, and when you have your new knee, you can put that Wonder Woman outfit back on and kick some ass!

You've done it before, you can do it again. Give your body the break it needs to heal. It's a good investment.

hugs!

Jess,

You work so hard and I think that 3 pounds gain is still nothing compared to where you started from. You have a winner's attitude.
