That's really one of my BIGGEST motivators. My knees hurt now...i'm really looking out for them in the long run.

I have now lost 20 Pounds. Sooooo I have now taken 80 pounds off my knees. No wonder they feel so much better!!!!! emoticon

Wow! Makes sense, though. One of my reasons for losing is that I don't want to find myself in the same position as my mother in 30 years - double knee replacement.

I saw this guy on Oprah once who had lost hundreds of pounds (over 300, I can't quite remember). He was using 2 canes to get around and was waiting on his knee surgeries so that he could really start living life again.

Umm, so that means the 7 pounds that have snuck up on me over the past couple of weeks are really 28 in my knees' opinion? Wow! That's certainly even more incentive to drop those 7 ASAP and chase a few more after them! :)

Thanks for the info!

It makes perfect sense! My knees feel so much better and it didn't take long into my weight loss journey before I could tell a difference!

My doctor keeps telling me that in order to help me not feel discouraged because I have so much weight to lose. Every pound of weight lost will benefit me and my knees.

I have never had knee problems, but my foot is killing me, even after losing 25 pounds. Is there anything about how weight affects the feet?

4/7/08 2:05 P

That is very interesting as I am on my way to knee surgery real soon!

4/7/08 1:59 P

Great help when you feel you are getting depressed from only losing 1 pound. Shows the big difference little changes make!

...If you went running when you first started thinking about it, you'd be back by now.

...focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.

I heard that recently, too. It's a good visual to have! There are days my knees are sore but I think I need new shoes emoticon

Isn't leverage incredible! That's almost shocking that a pound is quadrupled on our knees. No wonder so many have bad knees.

Did you know that for every pound you loose you take 4 pounds of weight off your knees. Well I have lost 14 pounds and that equals 56 pounds off my knees!! No wonder my knees have not been hurting as much. WOW!! emoticon
