Hello Everyone!! First off, I'd like to wish everyone less pain because as we all know, training and trying to lose weight with pain and injuries is tough! I just heard about DB a couple of days ago and liked the idea so much that I started my own Shake It Till You Make It challenge because I'm an organizer at heart. :) Sending everyone positive vibes that we'll all meet our health goals in all of the challenges we take!

Hi Cheryl. Can you share the main objective of the Keto diet? There must be certain foods that can be eaten?

The main purpose of the Keto diet is to cut carbs/sugars down so that your body begins to utilize its fat stores for energy. It is the best diet for me. The first three days are tough, as your body adjusts to not having the constant source of energy that simple carbs/sugar provide. You must stay hydrated. There are a TON of sites that will teach you the Keto diet. I have done doctor supervised and also on my own. Here is a site to get you started. Don't look at Keto as a diet, but more a lifestyle. Thanks for joining our group!

I am about 70lbs overweight. My calculation, not the standard! I have severe knee pain due to bone on bone on the right side. I will be getting a knee replacement in April, but am looking for some type of exercises I can do until then. I am also just beginning a low carb lifestyle. Any hints or suggestions are most welcome!

I think you have a great attitude, especially with surgery coming up. Has your Doc recommended a recumbent bike for now or post-op rehab?

This site has exercises to strengthen pre-surgery. Of course you must check with your Doc first:

I have plantar fasciitis which makes it hard to walk sometimes. In fact it's hard to do a lot of exercises when you can't be on your feet. I'm hoping through proper nutrition I can lose a lot of my weight which should in turn make it easier to walk. I'm hoping it will be a snowball effect!

Working out is great, but you CAN lose weight through diet alone. I know because I went from a size 16 to an 8 on a Keto diet. My diet was Doctor supervised and I could only walk short distances on a treadmill after having two spinal surgeries. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

Thanks for the encouragement! :)

It is important for me to set realistic goals. I also need to set short term goals. I like the 4 week games because they give me a great short term focus. I also joined a 6 month game for the long game. My exercise goal is to get some weight lifting and cardio in 5x per week no matter what hurts or how bad it hurts (old injuries). I got 40 minutes on the recumbent today. Felt great

Hi all,
My name is Tina. I started my weightloss journey 3 years ago weighing over 340lbs. Over the first 2 years I had lost 100lbs. Last year in 2015 I set a goal to run a half marathon in Nov of 2015. My training for the half marathon and all other activity came to a stop when in June of 2015 out of nowhere I had chronic back pain and and was basically in my bed for 2 weeks. At first I was told it was a back spasm. After getting an MRI it turns out that my L3 disc in my back has ruptured. At this time the neurosurgeon does not recommend surgery as I just don't have enough pain to justify surgery. Through physical therapy we have managed to stabilize the pain. I was out of activity for 6 months and gained 30lbs. I am here to finish my commitment I made to myself in 2014 which is to become the healthiest version of myself! I look forward to this journey! Let's kick some butt!

I feel your pain Tina, literally. I have had two spinal surgeries. I am proud that you are not giving up. Pain can drain your willpower and energy, but a support system can help hold you up. Thank you for sharing!
