Hi and welcome to the team. Being active is important when you suffer from arthritis. I have one knee replacement and need to get the other one done so I know what you are facing. One interesting thing I can share with you is that men bounce back from knee replacement therapy much faster than women. At least that is what me husbands orthopedic surgeon told me.

You are making good progress on your weight and should be able to have the surgery before long. emoticon

I am a 59 year old male, now disabled due to arthritis. I was formerly in the construction business. I am determined to improve my lifestyle as I go through double knee replacement surgery and rehab over the next year.
I am being treated by VA and am part of their MOVE program to help me reduce my BMI and weight accordingly. As I do so I am learning more about what is and how to prepare more healthy food on the budget being disabled imposes on someone. I was a single dad for some time so I by necessity learned how to cook. Now I want to improve my diet and overall health so I can regain an active lifestyle and possible be able go back to work. At the very least to be able to walk my dogs which was one of my favorite things to do. One month ago I weighed 288. Now I am at 272. I will be able to have the surgery when I get to about 250 but my goal eventually is 220. I would love to share stories or encouragement, ideas, or recipes with any of you members out there.
