Dear Soja
To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle and YOU are the only person on earth who can take the decision to make a change to your eating habits and physical fitness (despite the injured knee). Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet). To increase your energy output do regular exercise (in your case cycling or swimming are good options).
