I myself am in the begining of an endevour to drop 30....I don't show it becasue I have broad shoulders.....

But I know it will help my joints a great deal....I don't have back problems but I do have joint problems...but extra weight..even 10 or 20 will make a large difference on overstressed joints or vertibra in your case.....
