Suzanne, please don't give up on the swimming!! My orthopedic surgeon told me it's the only thing he would recommend for me at this point in order to lose weight - I too have PF in addition to knee problems. He says this is excellent because it is a good cardiovascular workout with no weight bearing. I have only been swimming two weeks but have lost 6 1/2 pounds in 2 weeks just by swimming and watching what I eat. (I am following the pyramid food guide - lots of whole grains and vegetables, NO STARVING!!) If you are not losing weight by swimming, talk to an exercise physiologist at your gym or pool -- mine gave me some great suggestions and it's working for me. Hope this helps!!
