I agree that you should talk to your doctor. Ask them about swimming and aqua aerobics.

Yes, your doctor can help with ideas and exercises. Lately I've been doing some yoga and love the flexibility and strength gaining from those 2-3 times per week...

Hi Ann

As far as exercise goes, your best bet is to talk to your doctor to get advice on what activity is safe and what you should avoid. The good news is, the majority of your weight loss progress comes from diet, not exercise. So as long as you're tracking your food consistently and staying in your recommended calorie and nutrient ranges, that's what will help most when it comes to weight loss.
