Giving it an all out effort this time!

I continue to work hard to loose the weight I have gathered in the last few years. Glad to be in a site where I am not the only "fluffy" one and can talk with people who understand.

Hi, Linda. The Silver Foxes DVD is very hard to find. I've seen it on Amazon for an outrageous price. Ebay has several of the VHS tapes which came out in 2008. It has 2 programs on it.
It has Jacqueline Stallone, Sal Pacino, Pauline Fawcett, Harry Hoffman and Shirley Simmons doing the exercises with Richard. It's nice seeing older people doing the exercises.

emoticon on your weight lose to date!! You're doing great!!

Thanks for comment on my blog regarding knee replacements. I think my last knee replacement was 3 years ago but I am not sure.

I waited close to 2 years for the second one so I think the first one was about 5 years ago.

I have had a much harder time with recovery on the second knee as I had a quad tear 6 weeks out from surgery and was actually in the PT clinic when it happened and I was just trying to lift my leg to get it on the leg press.

The doctor said I probably had more pain from the second replacement as my knee needed straightening so he had to do more manipulation at the time of surgery to get it straight.

Right now I am having difficulty doing stairs and getting off the floor but I am hoping the PT I am having will help me with these difficulties.

P.S. I added you as a friend so we could chat further regarding knees.
