You know, your legs can just quit working for you anytime they want to. Be kind to your legs. They have to support you for the rest of your life.

That is why I need to lose the weight. My knees were not made to hold up this much weight.

According to the google every pound you lose takes four pounds of pressure off of the knees! A small loss can make a very large difference!

So...if every pound is like four pounds of pressure, I'm putting 900 pounds of pressure on my knees every time i take a step? Lets hope I just did that mental math wrong...

When I was 285# 7 months ago, my knees were real bad. Catering was a real challenge. Every 45 mn I had to sit as it hurt with every step I took. After starting in the pool, working out & healthier eating as well as the awesome support on DC, I am back to 8-10 hours on my feet without the pain.
