new beginning

Hi I am 54 years old with many medical problems. I am waiting to have weight loss surgery this spring. I couldn't have the bypass or banding because they said it would kill me. There is a new procedure called the gastric sleeve which is safe for me. I have lost 20 lbs since getting into the program. It is very hard for me to exercise at this weight physically but i also need motivated mentally. I have 4 grown children and 5 grandchildren, i want to be around for them but i am also doing this ...

I would say that Water Zumba would probably be too much for you... I am afraid to try it due to the arthritis in my joints & my knee issues and I teach 17 hours of water aerobics a week. The Water Power Yoga would be good. If you can get just some simple shallow end water aerobics OR deep water aerobics (which is almost a double caloric burn) would be good. The deep water is BEST if you can do it because there is NO impact on your joints. It is highly recommended for folks with back surgeries & with hip and/or knee replacements. Hope this helps. Write to me anytime. Love, Dawn emoticon
