Dealing with the Pain of Arthritis? That’s Motivation

I have the early stages of arthritis showing up already in my hands. Avoiding bad arthritis is part of my motivation to have a healthy diet.

I want to lose the weight and keep it off because, just like the LA TIMES reports:

• If you’re overweight, try losing a few pounds. When you walk, your knee bears the pressure of five times your body weight, Gillespie says, so losing 5 pounds will take 25 pounds off your knee.

Twenty five pounds… that’s like two or three milk gallons right?
