Came back in July '14 after 3 1/2 years

I'm 64 yrs old and a 15 yr breast cancer survivor. I suffer from neuropathy due to Taxol (chemo drug) with pain throughout my body most of this time. Surgery on both knees 24 years ago + bad hip began to limit my exercise ability 10 years ago + weight gain slowed me down even more. Now need to loose the wt and increase my mobility, flexibility, and endurance while adding some muscle.

WOW! You are amazing! have at least 120 to lose to start with, then probably another 20-30 behind that. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, but you give me hope.
