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.
