I think you have to decide what piece of equipment you will use more. I think the treadmill would be easier on your joints to start with but you may like the elliptical better. You said you used to walk so maybe you can do the treadmill and start off slowly and increase as you get stronger. Plus a treadmill has inline, varying speeds and you can do it rain or shine, sleet or snow! Just decide which you like better. I have both a treadmill and an elliptical and if I could keep only one the treadmill would stay!
You have internet so you can do Spark People videos or go on YouTube and do other workouts as you get stronger. Those are pretty much free just the cost of your internet service good deal!
"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."
"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."
