S/C/G: 101/ticker/60 kgs

Height: 5 foot 6

Default I can walk without knee bandages!


I've been at this fitness/ weight loss thing for a couple of weeks now. This year I've basically been in front of the computer at home all day, not really leaving the house, because of unemployment/ health issues.

When I first started going on the walking machine I could only do 10 minutes at a time at 4km/hr, stopping for a lie down each time. The only way I could do more was to bandage up my knees, walking on soft grass on the oval, as my knees were so sore. I thought I had arthritis, and I'm only 32!

Now I can walk up inclines on the walking machine, from 4-5km an hour, for over 60 minutes at once! With no knee bandages!

All with just 2 weeks of consistent effort.

It must have been weak muscles in the legs that were causing the knee pain...

Congratulations and thanks for sharing!!! You have inspired me to start over.
I will:Journal every bite * Be gentle to myself and my family * Exercise to the best of my ability * Drink at least 8 glasses of water * Focus on colorful veggies, salads, low gycemic fruit, lean proteins and healthy fats * Limit grains * Get up at the same time everyday and get back into routine * Visit 3FC every day, it makes a big difference to my attitude, thanks to the wonderful folks here.
