    I lost 70 lbs in 2017 but then broke my shoulder! I’m an emotional eater and sadly gained 40 of those lbs back! I know loosing weight would help my knees but until that happens, I keep trying different things to keep working full time and to have some quality of life!

    I have to use a cane. I'm less active due to pain that also causes me to sweat. I still try but am sick of being in pain, sweating and feeling gross.
