Once and For All!

6/14/13 Day 1 - I've been overweight since the age of 11. I gained 25 pounds as a kid in the 5th grade when my parents divorced. 7 years of stress and unhappiness followed and overeating became a lifelong habit and way to cure stress and numb pain...so I thought. All along it only created more. Now I find myself at 52, at my highest weight ever. I need to do this for me first and for my wonderful family so I am healthy and there for them. I'm ready, I can do this...once and for all!

Thanks, Dear Teri, for your well wishes. I had my 2nd appt. with the Ortho. Specialist today and I opted for another cortisone shot in my right knee. And then down the road, I can have another one or opt for surgery. Probably will be opting for surgery, once and for all. The cortisone shot surely relieves some, lots of the pain for a couple of months about, which I'm so thankful for. I know that the total knee replacement is a must and I can't ignore it much longer. If I do, all it does is deteriate worse and then also lays havoc on my good knee, so I must go for the "slice & dice" route. Ha! Thanks so much for your concern. You are such a special jewel of a friend to me. I hope that you're having a good day. xoxoxo with love, Karen
