Hello Angel. Welcome to the team. You have a long ways to go but just take it one pound at a time. Start by just eliminating one thing from your usual diet. Take to exercise a little bit at a time. If walking is difficult, get yourself a cane/walking stick. I find with my bad hip that the cane is very helpful to keep my balance and avoid any falls. Your name is Angel - remember that you do have an angel watching over you too so don't be afraid to call upon her for help. Faith is an important tool to get us through this battle of losing weight and dealing with pain.
Take care. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi there everyone, My name is Angel...I am seriously overweight at 418 pounds! About 10 years ago when I was around 100 pounds lighter, I was diagnosed with osteo-arthritis and told to lose weight! Obviously not only did I not listen, but I proceeded to add weight and begin feeling even worse...mostly due to being unhappy in my life and continually stressed and I was hurting all the time especially my knees! I am here now to lose the weight once and for all and to get healthy. I cannot even stand up for more than 5 minutes without having to sit down because I am in pain. At 46 years of age, I am ashamed I am in this shape and hate that to sing I have to sit down while the older people in our praise team stand the whole time...I am looking for others who have real issues with exercise because of pain t see what they are doing to accomplish this task...I welcome any and all friends in the hopes of being supported and being able to be supportive as well!!! Hugggggggggggggggggggggggggsssss and thank you for reading!
