Hi, Welcome to SP!! You will learn so much here & by following the recommendations for nutrition & fitness, you will amaze yourself at what you can achieve!
When I started out, I used my son's Wii Fit and purchased the Walk Away The Pounds dvds They are pretty cheap at Walmart or Ebay. And i have found other workouts at thrift stores, yard sales. That way if I don't like them or can't do them, I'm not out a lot of money. Right now, if you have none of these, I bet you have a radio-find you a lively station & just walk/dance in your living room! I have done that & still walk to my favorite Bruce Springsteen cds!
Try different things-you will find what works best for you!!
Glad you've joined us!!!

Sparks is a wonderful site. It offers so much for Free. Exercise videos, support groups, diet plans w/calorie counters, exercise demos and how many calories you burn with each exercise. I started out with no equipment. Try the exercise videos. There are ones that will work for starting out right up to advanced.
Once again..Welcome! And remember to check out the groups!

When I started Spark People, I had no equipment. I used 2 equal sized cans of soup as hand weights and used them at home doing the Spark People Core, Upper, & Lower Body Exercises. I walked up and down my stairs, did jumping jacks, danced to fast music - making sure I contorted my body & moved my feet enough to work different muscle groups - for cardio, and did the modified walking lunges throughout the day while I did my chores. Later, I purchased an inexpensive set of wrist wieghts & ankle weights. That way, as I lost weight, I tricked my body into thinking I still weighed the same so it wouldn't slow down any. I wore them at home while exercising & cleaning. I walked the entire perimeter of the large stores, INSIDE, and walked in malls, which are safer. Find a buddy or a group of people who have the same goals as you - do the walks together - have danc parties - play softball - run in the sand - etc. You can do it.
