I'm still in physical therapy but doing well. I injured my leg in college and had all of the cartilage removed ( they would never do that today). It wore down the bone and shortened my hamstring. I had actually lost an inch in height. Knee is really good- ham string stretching out is the harder part. But I did the 5k diabetes walk last week! I think in another month I'll be pretty close to 100%.

Not only do I need encouragement and motivation, after the death of my husband last year motivation can only come from me but I hope to help others who are working hard to improve their lifestyles as well.
