I'm 78, work in my own studio "StudioEnigma" and plan on living till I'm 100. So I need to loose weight and improve my strength. I am also a post kidney transplant, of 13 years (Sept 30, 2004). On Nov. 1, 2011 I had back surgery. Before the surgery I was in considerable pain, had quit exercising because of the pain. On September 16, 2016 I had a total hip replacement and was in a lot of pain when I tried to walk. Again I quit exercising and gained some weight back on. I am now almost pain free, back is acting up again) and am trying to lose weight. I get short of breath with any exercise and walking short distances, but I think that if I continue to loose weight and try to build my stamina I will get less winded. I have not been on Spark People in almost 5 years, but I am back full force. :-)
