    Do you think if we asked the mods nicely, we could get this stickied? In Off Course/Around the Farm?

    I'm still hoping that we could get a diet and fitness section set up.

    I'm really struggling for many reasons, but being less mobile due to this stupid fricking knee isn't helping. I don't feel as I belong in the disability section, I'm fortunate in that I think this will be fixed, but I'd love to be able to share exercise tips with people.

    Even for the 100% able, when you live up here in the freezer your riding time inevitably becomes limited at this time of year, so finding something else fun becomes a requirement.

    I'm in. I started eating better last week. I'm going high protein, low/no carbs. Yesterday I started jogging/power walking with my GSD's. So far I'm jogging out two miles and walking back. I'll be increasing as the pain decreases . I'm not as young as I used to be.
    I've got at least 25lbs to lose

    You should look into the Couch 2 5k program. It's a great way to gradually build up your running.

    Now, any idea for exercising with a bum knee? Swimming is out- the local pool is too far away to make the trip worthwhile.
    Kookicat...stationary or recumbent bicycle. It's the first thing patients get plopped onto post knee surgery.

    I was already in fairly good shape when I started Couch to 5K in October. I 'graduated' the program Thanksgiving week and keep building my weeks every 2 weeks. In fact, I ran 8 miles on New Year's Day.

    I've been astonished at how well the C25K program provided me with a base from which to build. That week when you run for 10 minutes straight seems formidable, but then the next thing you know, you're running for 15 minutes, then 25, and it seems like it's so doable.

    I'm signed up to run a half marathon on Feb. 26th.

    This is great! I really need the motivation and the support. My horse would certainly be happier if I was lighter and more fit!

    I'm in! While I need to lose a few pounds my main goal is gaining fitness. I was in a really bad roll over truck accident 5 years ago that left me with severe neck and back pain. I take enough morphine everyday for a 350 lb. man The medication make me comfortable some of the time and I just deal with the times I hurt. I kept riding until 2010 when I lost my show horse to colic. I have not ridden steady since then. I have a horse in full time training and I will start riding him soon but I am totally out of shape. I need to get my strength back soon.

    I am limited to what I can do but I am going to try my best to get through it. I am going to try to do C25K. I was a runner before my accident and would like to do it again but in the past it has really hurt my back.....I am hoping that building a bit slower will be the key to my success!!
