Knees? What knees? (weekly weigh-in)

Too much uncontrolled eating this week – gained 6 pounds. Am I discouraged? No…

I’ve mentioned before that I’m finally realizing that more has to be put into place in my life in order to keep on the path and get to my goal. Dr. Osborne asked today if I’d consider bariatric surgery – but I’m just not ready for that. I still believe that if I get my head together and get my life in order, that I can do this thing without the surgery. The surgery is the right choice for some folks, but I don’t think I’m one of them. It’s a matter of, am I willing to put things into place to be able to avoid the surgery? Can I get that goal so firm and real in my mind that it will override a whole lifetime of destructive behavior? Don’t know yet, but I’m working on it. 🙂

Riding the bike is helping – almost too much. 🙂 My knees are letting me know in no uncertain terms that they’d prefer it if I would lighten up on them a tad. I mean, going the length and back of Riverside Park twice in the last 24 hours (make it thrice, if I can get a ride in tonight) is a little much for them to handle. I’ve told them to stuff a sock in it, drink some Biofreeze, and get on with it. We’ll see who wins that arguement. All I can say is that riding is theraputic on a number of levels, and I’m not gonna stop if I don’t have to.

Amanda says that next, I’ll be wearing leather. Hmmm… big ol’ jacket with ‘BigCal‘ across the back. Nice… 😀 Might be a little much for the recumbent, but who knows?…
