Hi Paula
Good to meet you. I will certainly check out the knee replacement board. Congratulations on your weight loss. I only need to lose about 20lbs but I am finding it tough as I can't do my daily walking. I had my other knee replaced in 2010 and I know that it is tough but so... worth it! I am using my exercise bike and some of the fitness videos on SP. SP is really helping to keep me motivated. emoticon

Have a good day

Hi there and welcome to the team! I too live in Vancouver and I had knee replacement surgery in May, 2013. Have you checked out the knee/hip replacement team on Spark People? I found it an excellent source of support and information. I too used the surgery as motivation to lose some weight, as I wanted to make sure that I had the best outcome possible. I lost 20 lbs prior to the surgery and I've lost another 20 lbs since. You can do this! The surgery was hard at the time, but I have my life back now and can lead an active lifestyle.
Good luck to you,
Paula emoticon

Hi Everyone
I am fairly new to this but very excited to join your team. I live in Vancouver, Canada emoticon and have been here for 26 years - originally from the UK. emoticon

I am retired and a widow. I have 3 adult children and 2 (soon to be 3) grandchildren. Two of my kids live close by and one lives in Boston. I am off to Boston and Maine at the end of the month to spend Thanksgiving with my east coast family.

I am really motivated to lose this weight as I am waiting for knee replacement surgery early in the New Year and my surgeon said that 1 extra pound is like 4lbs on the knee.

Looking forward to getting to know you all. emoticon
