I finally did a search online to see if there was a way to get some temporary relief so that I could exercise more. I found MendMyKnee.com. I purchased their Freezee and Inferno wraps and the ultra-sound unit with their gel. I can now walk without so much pain and some days pain free.

Rusty, both my knees are shot, both need total replacements. I too was faced with the same issue, how to lose weight when you can't exercise.
My solution was to join a fitness center and swim laps. I was never a good swimmer, but the internet is a good trainer/coach and I taught myself to swim. The result has been amazing. I have lost 25 lbs in the last year, toned up and I can now get by with 2 Advil in the morning for my knees. (takes the edge off) Swimming is great exercise and painless on the knees. It's a great way to lose pounds and good cardio too. I highly recommend it.
