Okay so going on 2 years ago now i was 50+ Lbs. overweight, didn't exercise, had a horrible diet.
Spring of 2008 i decided to get serious about getting healthier. I started off with WW but gradually shifted away to something closer to Primal (the only meat i can bring myself to eat is fish and i do eat dairy but i've cut WAY back on the grains). I also started doing rollerblading an hour a day almost every day. And i lost 35 lbs. I looked and felt much better. Then fall came and i slacked off with the skating and the dieting. Nothing horrible happened, i gained less than 5 lbs.
Spring of 2009 i started doing more Primal sorts of exercises, still some skating, cut out most of the bread and rice cakes and crap. Lost another 25 lbs. (from 180-125 in a year and a half. Female. 61 inches tall. Born in 1976).
Started CrossFit in August. Started having some issues with my shoulders in October (CrossFit plus a job with heavy lifting is maybe a little too much for me). Decided to stay away from upper body stuff and just do things that used my legs.
Rather abruptly developed a problem with both knees. It got somewhat better over the next couple weeks. Went back CF as usual. Mistake. The last few days have just been awful. I have an appt with the Dr. in a couple of days. My attempts at internet self-diagnosis suggest Patella-Femoral Pain Syndrome or Chondromalacia Patellae...Not good.
Am i the only one who can't seem to exercise without falling apart? Has anyone had this problem? I just want to be able to exercise again. Right now pretty much everything pisses my knees off.
