"And now Art has discovered dieting and likely is feeling better since that 100 lb monkey on his back is starting to disappear." - tele

Tele, before the arthritis I was much thinner than I am now. I weighed about 240 lbs when my hips and back gave out and I got the pains in my hips. At that point I thought "what's the point of even trying?" and I started just eating what I wanted and quit exercising because if I hurt all the time what difference does it make?

Get it? The weight came after the arthritis. I was riding bikes and swimming and lifting weights and doing stairmaster almost every day. I was keeping the weight off. I gained a lot of weight after I woke up with the pain in my hips.
