Hello, my name is Tracy and I am rejoining this website for the umpteenth time. I’ve been steadily gaining weight for the past 18 years and have had very little success at taking off weight. In the last 5 years, my personal life has been overloaded and stressful and that’s when I saw the most aggressive weight gain and lost a lot of my motivation to go out and move beyond going to work (I stand all day and walk some there. No desk job). I was just diagnosed with prediabetes and am working on my diet and supplemental support. But in these last five years, the biggest hit my body took was on my knees. I don’t know what exercises I can do to strengthen my knees and I am looking for great nutrition advice for building the cartilage back up in my legs and feet. This is frustrating because I feel like I take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. Although now it feels like 1 forward and 3 back. Menopause is also changing the way my body responds to exercise and stress so I’m feeling like there’s so many moving parts I don’t know what to try to nail down first.
