Our wedding reception, my birthday





what do you mean it's not my pillow??





My farmer's market space in Sturgeon Bay-yeah, I'm a Steelers fan. Packer tent was all I could find.



I have 26 pics in my gallery

New knees, New Me :-)

I have tried everything to lose weight. I have battled for years with my size and usually end up gaining back more than I lost. I don't have much positive support in losing the weight. I have wonderful, loving people in my life, but they love me as I am and I hear a lot of "there's no reason to lose weight, I love you as you are" from the best of them or "You never keep the weight off, so why bother" from the rest. Nearly 30 years of needing total joint replacements that we thought were not ...

Nearly 30 years of needing total joint replacements that we thought were not possible (not going into the reasons why, they're in the "need to let go" category) really contributed to the weight gains.

1st knee was done 8 weeks ago tomorrow. I am down 20+ pounds, which is great. The knee seems to be taking forever to heal, though. For some reason, I thought that once it was fixed, it would be easy. NOT happening that way. I am having to learn patience (not liking THAT one little bit!)

I haven't seen my husband since about 3 weeks before my surgery (he's a truck driver) which doesn't really help the general crappy "I am SO tired of not being able to DO things" mood.

This being said, I am still glad I had it done. I still plan to do the second one (IF I can ever get this one to cooperate enough to get up and down the stupid steps for the house!)

My amazing mother-in-law got me a Y membership so I can workout in the pool, so I go to a water class 3 days a week now. And since she's a retired nurse, I call her all the time for advice on the annoying high protein I need for the healing. Thank God for my amazing husband, his mom, my son, and SparkPeople. I sure couldn't be making this journey alone!

Thanks for the cup of coffee. Always nice to sit and talk to a friend for a while over a cup of coffee.

Hi! Sorry to hear about your van escapades.... hope it straightens out.
I got your message about the stocking, and wanted to send you a picture but I haven't had a chance yet. I will get to it.... had some other stuff to deal with here. I'll be in touch... Keep up the good work of staying back on track. You're doing good!

They have the bike in the outpatient PT but it hurt my knee. That is how I hurt one of my knees in the first place. I couldn't even turn it around full circle. It hurt in my knee joint.

Senimmo I remember when you were having your problems and it hurt so bad. I spark mailed you and asked you not to leave the rest of us who come behind. I was so glad to see your comment on my blog. I cannot swim. I had a traumatic experience when I was in my teens and thought I would drown and have been afraid to get in the water since. I hurt more than I did when I got out of rehab but wanted to walk instead of wobble and wanted to keep my balance, So they sent me where they would strenth my muscles and work me over. I love the people there as they all know what each is going through.
Again I say emoticon
