So yesterday I had my knee surgery after 5 weeks of waiting and 3 months of pain. I have been very depressed because of my situation. Now I am on the healing side of this issue and hope to be back to work soon. Doc says I have to lose weight but I really can't do the job I love for to long before I mess this one up again or work on my right knee. He said for a 42 year old I have 60 year old knees. So now during all of this knee issue, I am trying to find a new sit down job so that I can lose weight and not kill myself. I work on my feet 4 ten hour days and a second job where I am on my feet at least 4 hours of the 9 I am there. I figure if I get a sit down job, I can work while I am healing and be able to work on weight loss at home where it is more controlled and very low impacted. I have gained about 15 of my 35 back. It is okay. I am not negative about it.I know why and what put me here.; Now that I can do a little bit of walking, I can concentrate on getting healthy and being able to exercise until I can't anymore.

We can do this if we take it day by day and step by step~

Glad to see you are keeping a positive attitude about it. I wish they showed more details on the workouts on the Biggest Loser when someone has an injured knee. It's obvious that exercise and weight loss are possible watching them, but I'd like to have a better idea what they are doing for exercise.

Kildayan is likely going to end up having knee surgery. Glad she'll have someone to talk to it about who will understand the challenges.
