Doc is right - losing weight will help by taking the weight and pressure off your joints.
But you're right too - it's a slow and difficult process.
In the meantime, as already advised, drink plenty of water. If you don't like it, try what I advised my Mum: a cup of water, on the hour, every hour, as medicine!
Whatever exercise you can manage as well, will help. How about swimming, where the water takes the weight off your joints for you?
I look forward to hearing how you get on.
