I have severe osteoarthritis in my knees. For the past 4 years I have been allowing it to be an excuse for not losing all of the weight that is tearing my knees apart. Every time I go up stairs, my knees make audible clicking/popping sounds.
I haven't been able to walk much on the treadmill the past 2 weeks, but I've been very conscious of every bite that goes in my mouth.
Today my husband followed me up the stairs. We got to the top, and he remarked, "Babe, your knees didn't "click" even once!"
My scale is one of those stupid scales that measure different weights depending upon whether I'm leaning forward of backward or sideways or standing on the front or back, or with my left breast thrown over my right shoulder, so I don't know exactly how much I've really lost...but the numbers are going down. I've decided to log the "lowest" number that I can make the scale read, which may be considerably different than the scale at the doctor's office. The important thing is the numbers are going down! WOOT!
