Thank you so much m Beth for your reply. I have also joined the myyogaonline challenge to loose some weight and a friend of mine suggested that there is a product called Recovery in the natural food store - I bought that yesterday to try and see if my knee gets better. She swears by it. I am in the initial stages of osteoarthritis - its a vicious cycle - they tell you to loose weight but how...when you cannot exercise. I am worried to damage my knees more...but its a start here. Thanks for the support.

Welcome to SparkPeople and to this particular team.
I too discovered at the menopause stage that arthritis had set in. Losing weight for me has become a very difficult battle due to declining mobility. The arthritis has moved along into further stages of development and I am now scheduled for a right total hip replacment.
As for exercise, every person is different. We all have to find what works for us. I have tried many forms of exercise - belly dance, yoga, 30 minute circuit at womens' fitness club. I am not a water lover but have also tried water aerobics which apparently is really good for people who have arthritis. I don't go to the pool though - maybe if I had someone to motivate and go with me. In preparation for my surgery, I have been going to a personal fitness trainer once a week - we are working on building my strength. I have seen changes in my body shape and know that I am much stronger than when I started a couple months ago. I have to remember that muscle weighs more than fat therefore the weigh scale is not reflective at this point. I need to watch my diet a little better I guess in order to get those pounds to come off.
The important thing to remember is to 'keep moving" in whatever way works for us.
Take care and may you have a prosperous New Year.

MaryBeth from Ontario
