Hi Selena,
I went through hip replacement surgery in 2013. It is important to try and do some strengthening exercises as it will help lessen the recovery time after surgery. I know that going for walks is difficult when you have hip pain. Try doing some basic stretching exercises and as much upper body movements as you can do. You can try doing some chair exercises (exercising while sitting on a chair). If you like water, going to therapeutic exercise class at a pool is good. Perhaps you could try journalling your feelings about exercise and about your food temptations. If you want to try taking a supplement for joint pain, check with a health food store to see what might be beneficial for you.
These are just some thoughts - you will have to do whatever works for you. Please check in with us at any time to let the team know how you are doing. Venting with Spark friends is helpful too.

I'm back ,,, I need to lose weight for a total hip replacement surgery but can't get any video or exercise to help. I'm walking with a cane .. So my spirit is really low.... I need something to do during the winter months to stay positive. I need exercise and food advice of what would help me. Just thought maybe someone out there went through something like this and has advice for me ... Thank you :))
Selena

Think positive, keep smiling :))
