Elliptical still sitting there

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Yeah, so ... the elliptical wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Don't get me wrong - It is wonderful!! I love it!! However, my knee did not want to play along. After walking on the elliptical for a week every day, very happily, my knee decided to swell up ... as I managed to bring it to its normal size, I went back on the elliptical and promptly it grew in painful size again! .... Doctor was not impressed and referred me to a nutrition class, which taught me nothing new.

He said that I had to lose weight if I ever wanted to be successful with anything physical. Ha ha ... so here I am again, stopping by to see if I can get motivation here somehow.

    I think elliptical machines are tricky. They don't seem designed for everyone.
    Glad to see you!

    Does your knee swell up when you just go walking? (Sorry, but I am new to your Sparkpage) Anyways, have you tried water aerobics or just some general pool time? My physican claims it is actually on of the best exercises due to the bouyancy and the resistance. You don't even really have to know how to swim, just walk in the pool using your arms to pull you through the water. I have arthritis in my left hip, knee and low back and I gotta tell you it has really been helping. Give it a try!
