I also have a lot of pain when exercising, I have degenerative disc disease and I have tried many different exercises that simply hurt too much to do, like everyone else said walking. I also found a good dvd. here is the link to it: www.safeexerciseforweightloss.com/ it starts out slow with a lot of breathing techniques and stretches to get you warmed up, but then it gets into real exercises that I believe will work if I keep at it as recommended. good luck, and congratulations on your weight loss so far!

Hello Smiley! Welcome to Sparkpeople and congratulations on all your success!!!! I have arthritis in my spine, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue plus heaps of past injuries, so I feel your pain! LOL I am a do now, think later person....lots of fun but get hurt being silly!!! :)
Walking walking walking...swimming swimming swimming...biking biking biking...and some light resistance training a couple times a week...rest days are also important, but even on those days with arthritis, a small walk is good.
YOU CAN DO THIS...:) Eat clean and healthy and just keep moving. Stay positive and believe it will happen! :)

Severe arthritis knee pain is what induced me to start exercising. I started off on a stationary bike for 15" daily. If you have a broadband connection, I also suggest watching some of the videos. You may also find that you need to ice your joints after exercise; I did. Now I can do almost any activity, but I won't run because of the damage it does to your knees. Make sure you use no or low impact if the arthritis is in your knees. I use an elliptical trainer, the bike and walk.
