I'm a 51 yr old disabled RN. I need to lose weight to help slow my severe aggressive osteoarthritis, which has necessitated several joint replacments, and causes chronic pain. My docs. only want me to excersize at PT or doing things that the therapists have oked. I also suffer from depression both genetic and situational.
I am just coming out of a bout with the depression. I missed my 1st weight loss goal because I over ate and didn't move much during that bout, thankfully it seems to have been short lived. I'm getting better at recognizing when I' in trouble with it.
I will shortly be having a total kneee replacement. I need both done. My husband says I am becoming the bionic woman. Wouldn't it be great if I could do the things she did?
I'm married 25 years. My husband has been great about taking care of me. He spends our vacations at the beach so I can snorkel. He helps me in then hangs around to help me out. I'm a real water person. He is not. Wish I had a snorkeling partner!
