Way back in my early Slimming World times someone in my own group reached their focus on and I heard someone say ‘This is the hard bit now, keeping there’. I hate to acknowledge but I kind of see what they designed now! I reached my target, (well a focus on, ideally I would like it 1/2 stone lower) in the beginning of the summer.

I stopped heading to group but in some way were able to stay within the mark range (3lb above or below the actual target weight) for nearly 10 weeks. Within the last couple of weeks before time for group it all seemed to catch up with me so when I weighed last week I had placed on 6lb, placing me 4lb over target. This offered me seven days to lose at least 1lb or I would have to begin paying to wait group again.

As obesity becomes more prevalent, we continue steadily to visit a rise in joint disease. The percentage of arthritis cases linked directly to obesity has increased from 3 percent in 1971 to 18 percent in 2002. A person with weight problems is around 60 percent more likely to develop arthritis than someone of normal body weight. One of the largest studies that viewed the relationship between weight and OA was the Framingham Study. In this scholarly study, more than 1,400 people who had their health tracked from 1948 to 1985 were given X-rays to look for OA of the knee. Thirty-three percent of the interpersonal individuals were found to have OA.

Of people that have joint disease, men in the heaviest group had a 42 percent higher level of OA than those of lower weights. Among women, a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 (25 is the beginning of the weight status category, “Overweight”), acquired a significantly higher risk of developing OA compared to women with a normal-range BMI.

The other condition that can affect joints is ARTHRITIS RHEUMATOID (RA). RA is truly a systemic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and can harm many systems of your body (like the heart, lungs, eyes and digestive system) but is most known for leading to a painful, joint-deforming arthritis. As the mechanism is not known, being overweight or suffering from obesity (having a BMI greater than or add up to 30), seems to boost the development of RA greatly. This may be because adipose cells (the cells in the body that store fat) make inflammatory chemicals that can both irritate tissues like joint tissue, but affect disease fighting capability function also.

Whatever the reason, for those who are inclined to the introduction of RA, having extra body weight may be considered a factor in whether they actually develop the disease or how severe it becomes. HOW EXACTLY DOES Weight-loss Impact Joint Health and Function? While we know that weight gain has a poor impact on joint function and health, we know the reverse to be true – generally also, weight-loss can have a very positive impact on joint health.

For example, with OA, as the Framingham research showed that even being slightly over weight significantly increased the incidence of OA in women, they also found that shedding 11 pounds reduced their threat of developing leg OA by fifty percent. A 2005 study that adopted around 150 patients with excess weight or obesity with OA found that a weight-loss of 5 percent caused an average 18 percent improvement in OA symptoms, including reduced pain and improved joint function.

With RA, preserving a lower weight is associated with better recovery and final results. Overall, body weight is significantly connected to the health of your joints. One benefit of maintaining lower weight is a reduced risk for all types of joint disease clearly. If you’re overweight and have problems with arthritis, even small amounts of weight-loss may enhance the health and function of your joints significantly.

Anyways, back January our last catch up was. Yep. 6 months ago! Shame on me for not blogging. AFTER I am not looking at along with you and blogging, it’s never a good thing. Not blogging leads to putting on weight. Sigh, yes, there’s more about that by the end of this post. A fun trip to Singapore and a luxury cruise to Vietnam and Thailand.
