I was an avid runner in my twenties. Now that I'm in my 50s and have a few old war wounds you can definitely call what I do slow jogging LOL

If you're running with a mid foot strike with 180 steps per minute at your "niko niko pace" chances are you're doing slow jogging.

Growing up everyone was a jogger. Then they became runners. I always thought jogging was nice and I could go longer. Anyway, I never thought I'd become a runner but jogger has always seemed like a nice idea. Maybe I'll give this a shot.

How is slow jogging for the knees? I happened upon the video in my Youtube recommendations. Looks interesting...Will it help you to transition to normal running/jogging?

If you believe Mr. Tanaka it's ok for the knees if you take it easy. Small steps, 180 steps per minute, landing on the mid foot, starting with low volume (e. g. you can use some kind of couch to 5k app).

You transition into running by doing 180 steps per minute or more and simply having a longer stride.

For maintaining 180 steps per minute one of the various free metronome apps is useful in the beginning and/or if you own one: a sports watch that is able to recognize your cadence.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
