Douglas, I'm 5'10" and about 150lbs, so I don't think weight is the problem (but I did only weight about 140 when this started, because I've stopped running, etc.). I used to carry a lot of heavy backpacks without pain. Once in a while now I carry a pack, but I haven't found it affects the pain (although often I'm in ski boots when doing so). I've heard a lot of folks say weight is related to pf, and losing some weight is certainly worth it if it would help. I would certainly do whatever possible to lose some weight if the pf would go away. Keep us posted as to whether it helps.
