I have been married for 33 yrs to Mike. I have 3 grown children & 3 grandchildren. I was always very active, & up until 10 yrs ago. Three yrs ago I hurt my knee, had meniscus surgery but they said it was worse than they thought. I had a slipped patella, two torn ligaments, and Osteoarthritis. Since then I have struggled to walk without alot of pain, & now have Ostio is both knees. I currently am watching my calorie intake, exer. 3 x a wk for 45 min. & stationary bike for 15-20 min. the other days I quit smoking 3 yrs ago, took myself off all Asthma meds..Obamacare stopped me from getting knee replacements that I need due to the outrageous deductable, BUT my husband recently got another job after being in the same job for 32 yrs & now our Insurance is going to be GREAT so I'm using that as a motive to get in shape BEFORE having knee surgery hopefully next winter! I started at 206 or 209lbs am now 194..
