I injured my left knee last month after slipping in the snow 2x. It was painful. I'm up to around 265 pounds and today is the first day where I've actually been able to workout gently with very little pain or discomfort.

Right now what I'm doing is a gentle warm up, walking workouts (I may add very gentle upper body workouts and workouts for bad knees), 20-25 min of gentle dance drills and 20-35 min of stretching. Plus rehab exercises. I plan on sticking with this for a while because I know its going to take inch worm speed to heal strongly.

I've also been doing intermittent fasting on and off for months now. It feels really good and I get a lot accomplished so I love it.

    I'm sorry to hear about your falls.

    I have to agree with you that it's easier getting things done while doing IF. Funny thing is, I don't even think about food like I did when I was tracking every morsel or even while doing "Intuitive Eating", which had me thinking about food 24 hours a day, pretty much. I wish I'd known about IF years ago. I don't know if I'll lose weight by doing it, but it sure has helped my sanity where food cravings are concerned. The first two days were a little difficult, but I hardly think about food now and I think I'm possibly on day five. Four or five.

    Hope you feel much better soon.
