|Another pound came back|
February 1, 2016
I gained again this week. I don't have my monthly visitor, but I ate a lot of gassy stuff last night (yummy, homemade baked beans). Not sure if that contributes anything, but add not walking much on top of that, and I can understand the weight gain.
My right knee still hurts if I crouch or kneel, but is otherwise fine. My left knee seems to be good. I can walk maybe a mile, but further than that might be pushing things. I used to walk 3+ miles a day without a problem.
I know this is probably not true, but it feels like whenever I push myself to be more active, my body seems to punish me. I want to be active, but I don't know how to push myself beyond what is "normal" for me. And if I suffer something because I was trying to push myself, I usually have to wait a month or so for it to heal and I can return to my normal activity level.
I am not going to give up though. This is a lifelong journey that will have its ups and downs. I just need to find my limits and do as much as I can within them. Maybe over time those limits will change.
