Exercise is problematical for me. My mind is willing, but various parts of my body (notably lumbar back, knees, right shoulder) make variety difficult, and sometimes execution, impossible.

I have finally settled on stationary recumbent bike, abdominal exercises and stretching recommended by my physical therapist, and select weight training.

Recently, I started walking, again, with mixed results. Anything over forty minutes or more than 1.6 MPH gives me great pain.

Still, I would not be able to continue my weight loss without the exercise, and when I don't work out, I'm a grouch. emoticon

    Hey, don't get yourself down. You are doing what you can, when you can and that is huge!

    I hear ya...I shattered a vertebrae in my back and tore a muscle in my left shoulder cuff. Since it's your right shoulder and it's my left, maybe we could join together and make a WHOLE person emoticon Of course I just kidding about that. Just do what you can as far as exercise goes...that's about the only thing you can do. After all, we sure don't want you to be a grouch emoticon
