Hello from Council Bluffs, Ia. I have found that Sparkpeople has been a wonderful support group of folks. Just sitting down every day to plan out the food for the day has helped me. Can you go to a fitness center or YMCA/YWCA that has a warm pool. That helped me out when I had health problems.

Don't give up. I have struggled most of my life with wt. I am 56 and it is harder and harder to lose a pound. But I keep putting one foot in front of the other, taking baby steps and lost 1.8 pounds last week. I was put on a new medication and the doctor says it will make me gain (water wt.). I will keep on no matter what. You can do it.
current weight: 324.6

your weight is crucial when it comes to your new knee. They told my husband every lb you gain or lose can make or break you so keeping your weight down is crucial. Good luck !
The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !
I'm retired, 61 and have spent all of my adult life in the Madison area. I've always been overweight and I have the horror stories of being bullied when I was in school. About 5 or 6 years ago I made a decision to get in shape and hired a trainer. It worked very well. I lost some weight and was in the best shape of my life.
But then my knee deteriorated to the point that I had to have it replaced and my trainer moved. It's been about 18 months since I got my new knee and I've been trying, with absolutely no success, to do this on my own.
I'm hoping I can get, and give, some support here. The site looks great.
