Am 67yr old and retired a year ago due to cuts in the Developmental Disabilities field. Was , also, Special Olympics field and track assistant coach. Due to changes in jobs for daughter and son-in-law, I spend most of time driving and hour back and forth to take care of 3 grandchildren and their home.".
Due to needing a double knee replacement, was advised to lose weight a few years back. Lost 65 pounds, doing 99% clean eating. Discovering SparkPeople was a blessing when added to my leaning how to be on a healthy journey.
Grew up in church thus God is major part of my life.
As a result of taking the healthy journey path, exercise was six days a week,now since being with grandkids, I really struggle to work in exercise and not picking up old eating habits. Also, chose to eat organic . Really feel better for it.

    Hi Kathryn thank you for welcoming me to you Arthritis group. I know i need to lose weight again to help with the pain in my right knee. I had a virtual appointment with an Orthopedic Surgeon July 2020 who told me that knee replacement probably wouldn't help me. He gave me physical therapy exercises to do virtually. I'm so thankful I had gone to a rheumatologist in January 2020 before the pandemic and gotten a cortisone shot in my right knee which lasted until last month when i was able to have a second one. Our son moved back from Los Angeles in December 2020 and came to stay with us for two weeks with our 3 1/2 years old grand-daughte. Needless to say I over did-it taking care of her while my son and DIL worked from home. It is good to be able to hear from other members with similar circumstances. emoticon
