If you can stand up, start by marching in place holding on to a chair. Do it for short periods of time to increase your strength and endurance. Purchase a pedometer to monitor your steps. It helps to motivate you. Do 1000 steps per hour or even 500. Spark has free chair videos posted. emoticon

If it is going to be it is up to me !!!

I am new to all of this, I have been small my whole life, last year I got really sick and am now on a life reg. of meds, I am on oxygen and my activity level is very low. I have gained close to 85lbs and It is killing me physically and emotionally. I am trying so hard but I am lost when it comes to how to maintain exercising and eating healthy!! I feel like a failure!!
