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.

      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.

      5 days post-op revision from VSG to MGB. Back home, feeling great. No more gas pain. Only minor discomfort in the abdominals, rather like after having done a bunch of sit-ups. Definitely don't feel like eating anything. Don't even have the boredom hunger like I had before. Fluids are going down ok though so that's good. Going back to work tomorrow. Wish me luck.

      I'm considering the gastric sleeve; however I have crohn's disease. I'm wondering if anyone with crohn's has had the surgery and can share their thoughts with me.

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Hi, I’m scheduled for surgery on June, 24. I’m so excited, but nervous at the same time.
