oh YES -- that is one of the main reasons i restarted this journey. Knees were hurting gong down stairs, especially carrying heavy (musical PA) equipment. I was also taking prilosec every day or so for heartburn! Today -- no prilosec - ever, and no knee problems!

YES! My knees felt much better after losing some weight. I'm only 33 but I've been diagnosed with mild early onset arthritis in my feet so I'm kind of guessing I might have the same thing with my knees since they often bothered me after sitting for a while or going up and down stairs. My highest weight a few years ago was 250 lbs. and when I started losing they got much, much better. Now I'm at 212 and I hardly notice any pain or stiffness at all in my knees (or my feet). Your joints cushion your weight, so when there's more weight than they should be handling they complain!
