It's been a great couple weeks, the diet has been on track and far more delicious than I realized eating 'healthfully' could be. Gym time has been great, though I gave up on 'training'. I think it just may not be for me...... my thing is cycling. Indoor cycling classes just do it for me; I've been doing them for 8 years now.

Only I've just developed what the doc says is 'Chondromalacia' in my right knee.... also known as 'runner's knee', I'm told. I've been instructed to stay far away from the gym and simply stretch once or twice a day.

I'm panicking a little just thinking about it---I really love my cycling classes. I was told I probably shouldn't even get on the Elliptical machine for a few weeks.

No use complaining, I suppose. But being active keeps me clear headed, on top of the fact that weight loss is a current goal for me.

Ugh. I'll just catch up on reading and cut my calorie intake to closer to 1200, if I can.

*pout*

What about yoga? Wait till the pain has gone down a bit and then take some gentler yoga classes?

hey great journal. I wish you good luck. You should be able to achieve your goal in no time. Just try to stay concentrated. Sometimes we become so obsessed about something we lose balance. But I guess it's all about in which period of your life you live. Sometimes it's so easy, sometimes every seems difficult. For me, sometimes it's easier to lose weight when I don't set it as a goal. I just set secondary goals: eat less, find other occupations, stay busy, work more, etc. But sometimes that doesn't work neither !

Anyway, that's awesome, you're on the right track and you're doing great !

Oh dude, all that is so freakin' true!

You're right.... I think the key is staying on track, but focusing on other things. Thanks for the encouragement!

Slowly, but surely. Being inactive 'cause 'o my stupid knee has slowed things down. But tomorrow I'm planning on easing my way back into the weight room. I'll start with some leg machines to gauge how 'knee friendly' leg strengthening will be for me at this point. Blerg! :cry: (that's me. pouting. a good likeness, no?)

Down to 126, bitches! :D :D :D

Been working hard and monitoring my calories closely. AND, my knee pain has all but subsided. Working my legs has absolutely helped---and the pain only starts to creep back when my mind wanders and I'm executing bad form.... so it's a nice little reminder to keep my head in the game! (I've also been stretching my quads a few times a day--that seems to be helping quite a bit as well).

Going to Germany for 10 days tomorrow. I'm actually really worried about staying on track. It's been about 10 years, but I remember being stuck with mostly cold cuts and cheese. I'm packing a ton of clif bars, and planning on sticking to breads. I really don't want to undermine all my weight loss efforts with high calorie carbs, though. Well, we shall see!

I'm keeping an eye on your progress 8) yeah travels can cause changes in your diet, because of a different mood too, but if you keep yourself busy you won't think about food so much. But have fun trying a cat's tongue cookie or a Madeleine dipped in hot English tea for us, or their other specialities, lol.

Anyway, have fun.
