Hello and welcome, Maggiemaynot43 :)

This is a great place for information and advice so do some exploring, read posts, ask questions and support others - it will all pay off for you.

Have you decided on a plan yet? This is a very straightforward one that might work for you

You'll find everything you need to use the forum by following this link to Pinned Posts I recommend joining a weekly weigh in on the day of your choice, and using the Daily Diary, where members share their meal plans.

If you haven't already, you can take a tour of the forum here

All the best

Hello Maggiemaynot43,

Welcome to this forum. I discovered this one via the running forums. Both the running and the weight loss forums have proved to be so informative and encouraging. Do you have many pounds weight that you wish to lose and have you a particular plan in mind?

I read in your profile that you suffer with arthritis. I had a fall recently and my x-ray showed that I have arthritis in my knee which I had no knowledge of before that. Have you found any thing that brings some relief to any symptoms that you have?

All the best with your weightless journey. 🌸😊

Hello there,arthritis was discovered in right knee,had to have an operation to tidy up and trim meniscus.had periods of a lot of pain.daughter is a physio and she gave me excersises to strengthen the muscles that hold knee firm.absolutely brilliant .my main issue was when I was diagnosed with RA though because that affects more joints.being confined because of COVID has not helped at all so weight has been creeping even though I am not eating naughty foods as such.I guess it’s more to do with lack of excersise .but I thought I can get some tips and see if I can shift about a 77 the skinny look would not be good although probably healthier
