Keepin' You in the Loop

Hello friends!  I hope you are all well!

I am sitting here in my recliner with my feet up and ice strapped to my knee.  I have had a frustrating few days.  The few times that I have run this week have seemed to really strain my knee.  Now, if you read My Story, you will understand why my knee might be swelling up from the high impact exercises.  I am still trying to determine if the swelling is from re-injury or if it is a natural part of the re-integration of high impact exercises.

Please, you have had experience with having a meniscectomy, then by all means, let me know how your recovery was/is with becoming more active!

Ultimately, I have been feeling somewhat down yesterday and today because of the swelling.  I find myself shaking my head... hear we go again!  I finally start to change my life and do something good for myself, and I get injured.  I suppose that is part of my trial, to break through the obesity and become healthy while taking care not to injure myself more!

Here's my wish list! Photo Via
I may be discouraged, but it is going to take a whole lot more than swelling to stop me.  I've set my mind, and there is no going back now.  I just might have to do less running... for now.

The next thing on my agenda is to purchase a bike.  Know anyone who wants to sponsor me a bike?  I'll totally advertise them on my blog!  Trying to keep the dream alive!

Happy losing!



  1. Spinning Spinning Spinning!!! There is nothing better for a person with bad knees. I am in your same boat with my bad knee. The doctors have told me that my surgery only had about a 50/50 chance of working and obviously it didn't. I have dreams all the time about me running again, but I am afraid it would take a miracle for me. Spinning is one of the hardest and most rewarding things I have ever done! I recommend it to everyone!! The best part... no knee pain after! Jylisha Campbell

  2. thanks for the post Jylisha! I agree 100%...although, right now I don't have access to a spinning bike. I love it... but I might be getting a real bike soon! I'm very excited about that!
