Hi, my name is Marianne and I am 63. I am choosing to join this for the need to lose weight due to osteoporosis in my knees. I had meniscus surgery 5 years ago and was told that knee replacement surgery would be inevitable, however, no insurance. I have found that when my weight is much lower, it doesn't bother me nearly as much.
I have two grandboys and really enjoy playing with them but my weight and knees have become a problem.
I also have a brother 10 years older than I am and we seem to share the same physical problems. He is currently grossly overweight and losing but health problems have cropped up due to so much weight carried. I see him and realize I need to get my weight under control sooner than later.
I realize this is a great group of people supporting each other and feel blessed to have found this group.
Congratulations to all who have been on this journey for awhile... the stories are amazing!
