    Very encouraging, Might M! Love the story about your mom and how exercise makes stairs not painful for her. And about the carbs building muscle! My muscles disappeared while on paleo–flat rear, 1000-pound legs, etc., even though I only weighed about 125 (low for me). Those chair squats are a good idea, too. Wish I could do the PT, but I don’t have insurance right now. On the knee exercise DVD comments, I read that several folks thought the info there was the same as they’d paid thousands for through PT, so I think I definitely need one for direction. I appreciate that y’all care. When pain is present, it’s hard to push past it in order to not have pain, but I know it is time to do so.

    Thank you, Rob. I’ve been googling exercises and videos which focus on the knees. Looks like if I strengthen muscles in my rear and legs, that will help my knees. Maybe then I can do some of the other exercises, too. Go Kaleo looks like a good resource. I looked up Fred Hahn’s Slow Burn (suggested by Matt), but then I read a bunch of negative stuff about it. The hardest part of this whole process is just getting into the exercise routine when my life is already exploding. But from how my body feels (and now looks, thanks to the carbs I’m now eating but made myself fat from after avoiding them for so many years) and from what all I’m learning from Matt’s writings and those of the Go Kaleo lady, I know I must do it.
