I am back on track and it feels so good. A 3 pound loss this week which brings me down to 229, half pound less than my previous low. And a 19 pound loss in total since I started this blog. One pound away from 20 and only 5 pounds away from my current “small” goal. Did you know its easier to reach a big goal if you make small goals to meet along the way?
This week I was anxious to get back into working out, but also didn’t want to hurt my knee further. It took until Wednesday but I started and realized I could still move quite freely, with some minor variations on exercises that can be hard on knees (for example, running on the spot instead of jumping up and down). My knee has actually recovered quite well. The odd twinge if I move it the wrong way or too fast but otherwise, she’s nearly better. So glad that didn’t turn out worse than it did. My biggest fear when I realized I had hurt my knee was that I was not going to be able to exercise for a long time and I would end up sliding right back to where I started from. I really do not want to go back there.
I also now have less than 90 pounds to go until my big goal! I will get there.
