Make sure you've been cleared by your doctor to exercise, and then you'll just want to go at your own pace. I agree that walking and water exercise are both good choices because they are easy on your joints.
Hope that helps. If you have more questions, let us know.

I have a client in her 70's who lifts almost as heavy as I do.
