I've been heavy all my life and started my first diet when I was 17 years old. It seems that was the kicking off point for a life of diet, splurge, diet, splurge. Each time having minor success followed by big gains. Sound familiar anyone?
Here I am 17 years later bigger than ever. But now....my knees are going bad. In Oct '07 I began to notice stiffness and pain when I climbed stairs. By the time I eventually made it to the doctor (April '08), I was severely limping and in a lot of pain. The doctor had no sympathy and simply said "lose the weight or replace the knee - your call."
While I would have appreciated a pat on the hand…something…the very blunt delivery was probably the best thing I could have ever heard. I finally realized I have to get serious about this....my weight was effecting my mobility.
