Avatar f tn I'm arthritic and want to and need to lose weight due to my knee pain. If I cannot exercise and I stay on my calorie trackor will I've able to still lose the weight still?
Avatar m tn Put all your weight on the knees so that you can feel pressure on your toes. Squatting helps to reduce fats stored in the thighs. Bicycle exercise Bicycle exercise is a very good way to reduce fat from lower abdomen. For this, lie straight on the ground with both the hands lying at the back of the head. Now fold the knees and try to hold the knees as close as possible to your chest. Shoulders also get stretched when you attempt to touch the knees.
Avatar f tn so lets stick to weight gain... by losing all the baby weight ur knees (if its not arthritis) should go back to normal... the weight we put on during pregnancy makes us put more weight on our knees which are the main supporters of our body, and the tendons are hurt by all the weight... i still have tendonitis after the surgeries because of the trauma caused to my tendons by hte surgeries... so i hurt a lot during the cold and rainy days... or when standing for long periods of time...

Avatar n tn Any exercises for losing weight that won't hurt my knees and ankles (have arthritis).
Avatar n tn Recently, I have been trying to lose and control my weight by playing competitive soccer. However, due to my heavy weight, my knees and ankles were under a lot of pressure and I was in a lot of pain. I purchased a pair of ankle wraps, knee wraps, and wore them while exercising. I felt much better during and after my workout. However, I heard knee wraps will actually increase the pressure on my knees because the wraps I wore did not have an open whole for the knee.

Avatar f tn I've changed my diet, I'm following the paleo diet. But since I've started with GM, up til today.. I've lost quite a bit of weight. In 6 months I've lost 23 pounds. Has anyone else experienced quite a bit of weight loss? I'm hoping the weight loss is due to my new diet plan and not the cause of some other underlying health issue.
Avatar f tn Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently. Thyroid point – press (50 times) the fleshy bit on palm between the base of thumb and wrist on both hands. You will feel pain when you press.
Avatar n tn I have had both knees replacement and 13 surgeries on my back. Losing the weight helped some but with the skin still there it seems kind of moot and depressing. Can someone tell me where I can find a pro bono surgeon in or near Melbourne Florida? I really need this help.
Avatar f tn Yes, swelling will show as weight gain.
Avatar m tn m not sure if not having enough protein is contributing to me not losing weight. I hear people talk about how they lose a pound a week and the such, but I've run 5 miles a day for 5 days straight for 1 month and have only lost 1-2 lbs. What am I doing wrong?!
594189 tn?1386916607 Maybe the low carb diet is right for your body? Not everyone can follow all diet plans. I still eat carbs (a ton) and I'm still losing weight without a problem. Maybe stick to this low carb diet till the end of the month and see what weight comes off, if none maybe switch to something of your own.
Avatar m tn I have a plate in my knee due to a fractured knee cap. However, both knees constantly ache (I am overweight and know I need to lose weight) and if I sit on the floor, I am unable to get back up due to having no strength. this worries me as if I fall in the icy weather, I am worried that I will not be able to get up. Can anyone suggest any exercises I could do to help. If I kneel on the floor it is very sore.

888748 tn?1241893015 I am looking for suggestions on losing weight, and being able to function daily without so much pain, and also to keep my other knee from deteriorating so quickly. Any suggesitons?
Avatar f tn My dr is on my case every time I see her because I am not losing weight fast enough for her---and of course she does not believe me that I am seriously working on this. I was planning on having a tummy tuck and some serious liposuction this March, but my BMI is too high for the dr to feel comfortable doing the surgery. I had 5 c-sections, all done vertically, so the scar is horrific looking.
