    Hi there, thanks for your reply! I'm glad you're feeling better it's always horrible when you have an injury and need to be extremely careful when you move. Yes, point to a better technique, so you kill two birds with one stone and not only keep on exercising now but you won't have similar problems in the future (hope so!)

    Thanks about the comments on my 6.5 miles walk. My regret is that I can't run more than 0.5 miles before I collapse... but I can walk the whole day briskly without problems. I'll slowly try to increase the amount of running that I do. The odd thing is that when I run on spot using the wii I can run 15 or 20 minutes in a row, but not when I'm on the street, for some very odd reason, which I still have to identify!

    Can I ask you a question? I have some fat on my tummy (the so called "loose skin") and some on my legs and knees, and the so called "bingo wings" on my arms. For my arms I'm doing some triceps extensions (I hope they're called this, I lift my body with my arms up and down) and some press ups (but with my knees on the floor, still not strong enough to do it in full!). I'm doing some crunches for my abs, legs lifts for the lower abs and twists for the laterals, and I'm doing some extensions for my legs and glutes. What else can I do to improve with it and not spend a fortune in a gym (where I wouldn't go anyway)? How many times a week you reckon I would need to exercise to lose at least the bingo wings for next May? I'm determined to look well in my wedding dress!

    Sorry to bombard you with questions, I will understand if you don't want to answer!

    Hiya...thanks for the comment on my page. Regarding my ACL recovery. I was 35 and got cadaver tissue instead of using my own. I was able to straighten my leg immediately, so only had to work on bending and strengthening. I was able to walk quite quickly, but decided to give myself 9 months before going back to sport. I worked heavily on balance, lifting to develop the muscles evenly around my knee and speed walking. Because of that, I never had to use a brace at any point to play sports. I did have a lot of pain with running, so decided to not do that and stuck to walking, some sprinting and bike riding for cardio. Now, 8-1/2 years later, I have started the c25k program and am having no problems and my knee feels fine with anything else I choose to do. I know people who tried to push themselves too hard after 6 months and had to redo their knee surgery or have problems now...I tell all the kids I know who are getting surgery to take their time - better to put off sport for a bit longer than they'd like and have full use of their knee for a lot longer!
