Boy, when you exercise, you don't mess around, do you!  Once your knee is all better, start with some light stretches.  There are some in Fibro 101.  Then start walking.  Honestly, that will help kick in the metabolism.  It did for me.  That and counting carbs helped me lose 85 pounds. 
 
Check out the walking in place videos by Leslie Sansone.  (There are videos by others out there too but I'm familiar with this video.)  The one I use is the 1,2,3 Mile Super Fat Burner...or something like that.  Exercising 15 minutes by walking in place and moving your arms is equivilent to 1 mile of walking.  You can do it for 45 minutes if  you want to be equivilent to 3 miles but I never did that.  I HATE to exercise.  Fifteen minutes was it for me.  But, I usually walked around the neighborhood instead of using the video.  It comes in handy when you can't get outside.
 
You rest up that knee and feel better soon.  You'll make it!

Sheila, more power to you! You haven't lost your motivation, that's a good thing. Sorry
to hear about you sprain. I agree with Sherrine, soon as it heals, start the gentle stretches
and work yourself into walking...slowly. Walking is great for arthritis too!

My knee is killing me. The dr. said it would hurt tonight due to her moving it around and the shot. She wasn't kidding.

I will look into some walking dvds.

The fibro. is really kicking in. Hip and ankle hurt too.

I am a mess.

Hey Sheila - so sorry to hear about your injury. I wish you a speedy recovery and hope that you can start doing some mild exercises soon. I, too, think walking does wonders if y ou can do it. Get better soon.

Well the chest pain came back. Not to mention on going fibor. pain. Knee is better still. I want to do some light exercises so bad. I am sticking to my diet, lost 3 pounds this past week. I wish I didn't have so much weight to lose. I'll get there.

Good for you! You've got a good attitude, that's half the battle.

Don't stop to think how much you have to lose.  I never thought I'd lose that much but I took it one day at a time.  I ate correctly, did gentle exercises, and the weight came off.  I wasn't looking for a quick fix, like some of these diets out there.  I was looking for a new way of eating that would keep my weight off, and it has. 
 
So, just take one day at a time.  You didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it over night but losing three pound in one week is excellent!  You are doing just great and should be very proud of yourself.
