Observant readers may have noticed a new graph under the title “Defattyfying” in the sidebar.
I went for a follow-up appointment with my consultant after my knee operation a few weeks ago. The prognosis could have been worse. True, it could have been worse as well but my glass is always half full!
Basically, doctors grade cartilage on a scale of 1 to 4. Grade 1 is nice and smooth, 2 is a bit rough, 3 has bits missing and 4 is missing. My right knee is a mixture of 2 and 3 and my left knee is a mixture of 3 and 4. So … my options? Option 1 – do nothing and they’ll get progressively worse until they give up the ghost in about 10 years time. Option 2 is to lose 4 or 5 stone and have braces fitted to my knees. Option 3 is an osteopathy – break my legs and put metalwork in there. Option 2 it is then!
Anyway, getting to the point – I’ve set myself a target of losing 4 stone in the next 12 months and the graph will chart my progress.
