In my country the usual identifier for seniors are having athritis so whenever you tell someone that you're having pains in your joints, they will refer you as already senior (that's a common joke). Well, I must admit that I'm really old and I have these pain in my joints and now consistently, pain in my knees. My dad has athritis, hubby too and on his mother's side. As I read, to prevent this pain in the knees, one must shed some pounds. I just have this more often than ever when I started working again. 8hours of standing, triggers this pain. I hope this would be over soon. When I got home today, I asked hubby to massage my knees because I couldn't bent it and worse, I can't walk without leaning or holding to something. It's so painful. It's good that I don't have work tomorrow so I could rest which I planned to go to bed as soon as I'm done with this post. I scheduled my review tonight but I would skip for now and have plenty of rest. I'm getting old and I'm getting heavier. I don't have the control on the former so I would concentrate on the latter, will be watching out my food intake. This is such a struggle, why it's so hard to lose weight. Ok, I won't stress myself with this, I will take each thing one at a time.
