    I have a had a tough week and haven't been very chatty lately. My hip and leg pain is kicking my butt and taking away more of the things I like to do. It has gotten to me mentally. I saw two docs yesterday and basically told to keep working on losing weight. It is super frustrating but this is apparently the only thing I have any sort of control over. So I will count my blessings and keep pushing. Down another pound this week...I will keep trudging!

    @pdd1216 I so sympathise. I’d been trying to get by on 1 tablet a day but I’ve upped them now, and it is helping. I find I lose weight if I sleep, and for that I need pain relief. I’ve also been swimming nearly daily, with very little leg movements and it does seem to have strengthened the muscles around the hip and made it more stable. I also just bought a rollator, to help me get out more, but I feel too young, have only used it once , but it did help.

    My name is Mary, 65 from Pennsylvania.
    Been MIA for a few months but still logging in everyday since I started MFP 5/14/21.

    Unfortunately lost my mojo and gained a lot back but not all Thank God! Need to get back on track and focused. I bought a NEW to me, gently used, Commercial PreCor EFX 835 Elliptical. It was delivered the beginning of November, as others here know I wore my previous 10+ year old one out from my extensive workouts. Back up to 150 minutes on my 3 days off per week.

    Good to see some familiar names here and glad to see some new ones too!

    Yes, you can relate indeed. I have a walker in the garage from an old knee injury but my pride refuses to let me use that. Bad enough I use a cane...I will revert to crutches when it is too much. I look forward to getting back in my friend's pool in warmer weather. Hugs!
