The pain in my feet is arthritis

I have been having problems with my feet for a long time now and haven't been able to get any answers because of my weight. Any time I go to the doc I am told to lose weight. I realize I have a weight problem and have a lot to lose but I find it so hard to believe that my weight is causing such pain in my feet. I tried a new doctor and she said I have osteoarthritis and offered me several suggestions on what to do (which does include losing weight and I am working on it) but I am so happy to have finally found someone who would listen to me.
