    I'm up for this.  I lost some weight before the op and it's been creeping back on.

    That sounds a very good idea, I have lost one stone (14lb) since TKR on 28/11/14 and need to lose another 28lb.  So far doing well, just a few problems with the tendons at the back of my knee.

    It's here 1st Jan. Time to start my weight loss plan. Going down to boots later to get a weigh in print out. Been too scared to look at my scales but you have to start somewhere.

    i used to weigh 27 stone and lost over half my body weight getting down to 12.7. I am guessing I have put on 3 stone after having 2 major surgeries in 3 months. Very ashamed. But  hopefully I'll be able to shift it in a month or two.

    have a new knee and a new tummy (skin) now is the time to put it all to use.

    2015 will be my year

      I definitely will stick around to encourage you 

      i personally find eating small but often and not eating after 7pm  works for me

       and no crash dieting ...eat everything even cakes.  But in moderation 

      don't deny yourself your favourite foods ...just save them for a weekly treat 

      good luck all

      A bit more useless information ....use a smaller plate but Don't pile it so high it falls off the edges ...lol 

      take a photo of yourself now and one In 3 months time.... Or use a skirt or a pair of trousers to try on once a week

      see them get looser and looser

      I do think everyone has an ideal weight after all it depends on bone structure and height ...a super model at 5ft 6 ins ( my height)  will probably weigh about 8 stone ...if I was that weight I'd look like a stick insect...my ideal weight is around 10 stone to 10 stone 7 lbs 

      i'm now 11 stone ...I know I'm not a lot overweight but it's still pressure on my knee 

      I would like to go swimming but am scared I won't be able to manage the steps into the pool
