Thanks for posting this question. My grandfather is in a wheelchair and will be turning 90 in a few weeks. His left leg was amputated a couple of years ago due to poor circulation. Anyway, he does some strength training stuff in the bed and with the a band thing (too tired to think of what it's called).

Hi Delores

Here's a link to our Limited Mobility Lifestyle Center. All of the exercises here can be done from a seated position:

There's no way to target fat loss to a specific area of the body. But eventually, with a healthy diet and regular exercise, the weight should start to come off in areas where you carry excess.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

I really need to get some weight off my waist. I am 63 in two weeks and only have one leg. what can I do to work this off? I still have a youthful attitude and manage to do most of my house work and physical therapy. I am losing weight, but not in my waist. Any ideas?
