It's because your knees gets weak day-by-day with lack of vitamins.

Not sure how weight reduction has anything to do with a lack of vitamins making your knees weaker... could you be responding to a different thread?

To the orignal poster, it's nice to know how even a little weight loss can improve things. The pressure on the knees can be tremendous. I think of it this way... if I am carying a fifty kilo pack, even taking off five kilos of that will feel good!
