You neighbor will then be lamenting "Why Me" when she gets sicker.

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

I just heard that for every pound we weigh (or gain), it puts four pounds of pressure on our knees. Yes, losing weight is a definite plus. My neighbor has had two knee replacements and lapband surgery and hasn't lost a pound. She doesn't eat right, too many sweets, but I guess she doesn't care. She is about five feet tall and wears a 1X. I know that because I fixed some of her pants for her trip to California.

Now, let's get busy getting fit.

You Go Girl!!!! I am also getting serious (again). This last summer I lost over 15 lbs by regular walks and watching what I was eating. I had a goal before vacation. After vacation I "fell off the wagon" and gained almost all that weight back. This time my goal is not to lose weight and get fit for "an occasion" but for better health. When exercising regularly, my hips and legs don't hurt at night!!!!

Hi Everyone, About a year ago I found this site but was not ready to loose weight and wasn't serious. Now I am really on a mission and beginning to chart food and weight and learning my way around this site, which can be a bit daunting. My orthopedic surgeon said that I MAY NOT need knee repair surgery if I loose 15#. I have a torn meniscus in my left knee and it may repair itself with exercise and weight loss. I also have moderate arthritis in the same knee which eventually may need to be replaced. Fortunately, I like to exercise love salad and fruits. Unfortunately I'm a gourmet cook, over eat the wrong foods and I was drinking too much wine. Currently, I'm allowing myself 4 drinks a week and measuring my food and going to the gym 4 times a week. I need to loose the weight and pain is a big motivator! Have a Blessed Day. Yolanda aka Yolandauna
