Lose a pound in weight
Excess weight is strongly correlated with joint pain, mostly because of the stress it places on these vulnerable parts of the body. Even shedding a pound can make a difference.
A landmark study in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatism showed that for each single pound of body weight lost by people with osteoarthritis pain in the knee, there is a 4lb reduction in knee loading, says physiotherapist Sammy Margo.
That equates to the same sort of kneepounding you d experience if you walked 4,800 miles.
[singular noun + 's] : my father[s]car We sometimes just add an apostrophe (') to a singular noun ending in -s: Socrates' ideas. But's is more common: Charles's wife.
[plural noun + '] : my parent[s] house
[irregular plural + 's] : the children [s] room
We can add's to a whole phrase: the man next door's wife.
The ending 's is pronounced just like a plural ending . The apostrophe (') in a form like parents' does not change the pronunciation at all. Possessives are not usually used together with other determiners.
The car that is John's is John's car, not the John's car.
Have you met Jack's new girl-friend? We can use the possessive without a following noun.
(NOT . . . the Jack's new girl-friend?)
For the structure a friend of John's etc,
'Whose is that?' Peter's '
We often talk about shops and people's houses in this way.

We had a nice time at John and Susan's last night.
