I know everyone is different, so I'm only asking for personal experience here. Has anyone noticed a decrease in pain correlating to weight loss?
I've lost about 40 pounds, and have not noticed a decrease in pain. Of course, all of the other benefits from losing the weight are present; more energy, sleep better, my GERD is GONE!, my knees feel better, chicks dig me (ok, wishful thinking). I know that it's much better for me, so I'm not downplaying losing weight at all. I just was hoping to have some pain decrease. My main problem is facet joint arthritis, and I've had it when I was in the Army and skinny, and didn't expect it would magically disappear with weight loss. I was just hoping the reduced stress on the spine would improve things.
