Welcome Isabel. I'll be 58 in April, so we are right on the same path! I have many aches and pains because of fibromyalgia, so I need to be really careful about my exercises. I work out in a warm water therapy pool. The water provides resistance, and if I am feeling stronger, I can also use the dumbbells and noodles, etc.
Good to have you here!
Sparkfully Yours, Judi
Dear Spark Friends, I may not always write back about everything each person posts, but I am really interested in you! If you ever need me, send me a Spark Mail and I will always answer!

I've found this Spark group but I also belong to a group that meets weekly at my church and we have used the Beck book as our foundation for a few years now. The step by step process is powerful. Good luck!

FOR AS HE THINKS IN HIS HEART; SO IS HE: EAT AND DRINK, SAYS HE TO YOU BUT IS HEART IS NOT WITH YOU.
HE GIVES POWER TO THE FAINT, AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE NO MIGHT HE INCREASES STRENGTH. EVEN THE YOUTHS SHALL FAINT AND BE WEARY, AND THE YOUNG MEN SHALL UTTERLY FALL; BUT THEY WHO WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH, THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLE, THEY SHALL RUN, AND NOT BE WEARY, AND THEY SHALL WALK, AND NOT FAINT.
I live by Salt Lake City Utah, I am 58 and 80lbs overweight. I stumbled upon the Beck Diet Solutions and I believe this is what I need to help me change my corrupt thinking. I have hurt my knees, elbows and shoulders so if anyone can advise me on the best resistance workout for me I would be grateful. It would be great to get and have the support. Thankyou very much :)
