    A huge congratulations! What an awesome weight loss.

    I wish going grain free would resolve my hip osteo. I am afraid I will be having hip replacement in the near future unless I can resolve the pain. I feel too young at 57 to be having this problem. Any other hip sufferers out there?

    it may not help, but a lot of people do well with a combination of yoga and acupuncture or other form of energy healing for arthritis.

    +1 EFT can be really helpful if the pain is related to an old injury or trauma.

    Question

    I am 56 and I've been on the Primal Lifestyle for a couple of weeks. I am getting the eating down pretty well, and dealing with the challenges of living with a man who loves to cook and experiments with pie, etc almost daily. He has no interest in PB. But, I'm concerned about the exercise. I have osteo in both knees, the left is bone on bone. I have heel spurs on both feet and a neuroma on one foot. This from 13 hours shifts on concrete floors. Question, is there hope that I will be able to do the exercise portion of the program? I really would like to lose about 40 pounds but my real goal is to get healthier!

    I have just learned about this thread. I've been hoping to find a band of lady silver-backs here, and I have!

    I'm 57 with sleep apnea. Have been on the Primal path just over two months. Have lost fifteen pounds--down to 231 from 246. Still having trouble with exercise. Getting better with wall push-ups. A recent bout with a Bad Bug of some sort has left me tired. More sleep is helping that.

    Here's a question: I am chained to a desk most every day at work. Winter has curtailed taking a nice walk at lunch. What to do to break up the monotony?

    Hi Cyndi - I always heard water exercise helps folks with osteo and it should be ok on your feet too. Do you have a pool nearby that you could go to a couple times a week?

    Entwyf - I find myself in the same boat. Winter is too harsh here for me to get outside and walk safely. I have a treadmill but it bores me to tears. I'm trying to still walk on it two - three times a week, and then do some exercising on the floor on off days. It really isn't much or enough - it seems.

    I am 52 and post menopausal - I lost 115 pounds on WW (goal May 2007), but when I started menopause in 2008, I started having trouble maintaining that weight. After my hysterectomy in 2009, I gained 20-25 pounds that I can't seem to get rid of. After reading Gary Taubes book on why we get fat, it seemed that my problems were caused by carbs...so I am going to try paleo. I have dabbled with it in the past, and did loose some weight with Atkins about 10 years ago. So we'll see how it goes.

    I also noticed that eliminating or restricting nightshades helped me. That was hard for me during the summer with the local farmer's markets but it's pretty easy in the winter when only plastic tomatoes and peppers imported from Mars are available.

    I swear by Qi Gong for joint pain and overall improvement of balance and stability. I very much like Lee Holden's DVDs (he's also on PBS).
