Hi and welcome to BOTH new members.

Exercise is key to weight loss and keeping it off. I know how painful it can be at times. I suggest you both check out the fitness page and see what exercises fit your circumstances. Most exercises can be modified to fit each one's capabilities and limitations. Every little bit of exercise helps. emoticon

Hello...I am new to this site. I am a 4 yr breast cancer survivor and need to lose more weight to reduce the risk of it reoccurring. I have lost 30 pounds and kept it off but still need to lose an additional 40+ pounds to get to my goal. I have high cholesterol and realize that I could possibly reduce this if I get the weight off. I have lost my motivation and am trying to get it back. I know the ultimate decision is mine to kick it in to gear and get it done but I could use some encouragement none the less. Any encouragement or suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks.

Hi and emoticon I also have chronic lower back and hip pain caused partially by osteoarthritis and partly aggravated by a fall I took last year. I also take an after cancer drug that is notorious for causing weight gain. Still, I am slowly but surely reaching toward my goal. Medical issues make it harder but they don't have to make it impossible. My advice is 1) use your nutrition tracker faithfully, every single day, because it will keep you honest and accountable for your choices; 2) find a few exercises/activities you actually LIKE doing and then do them 3-4X a week - if you like doing them, you have a better chance of sticking with them; 3) stay active with your teams because they will keep you motivated and give you support and encouragement, and; 4) try to have fun with this because if you enjoy the journey you will reach your destination!

Take a look at the Spark Exercise Videos. There are some good exercises you can do even with a bad back, and remember you can do exercise in 10 min. blocks a few times a day - walking for instance - you don't have to do 30-45 min. at a time. I don't know your situation but if you have access to a pool, water exercise is fantastic for people with back and joint problems. That's my main form of exercise now. There are lots of team members with back and joint problems and they will share info with you too if you start a topic and ask for help.

Good luck and don't ever doubt that you will succeed emoticon

I am 60 yrs old and am obese (199 lbs, 5'6"). I have IBS and on a very strict GI diet. I feel stress and my meds are causing the biggest problesm to losing weight. Exercise is a big problems as I have lower back issues and yes, I waddle when I walk. I love doing yoga and stretch when I can with the stretching rope and do hand weights for my upper arms. I do have a small ball and larger ball which is great to sit on while on the computer. I do have balance problems because my core is large.

Are there any members from upstate SC in this forum or anyone who could be an email motivator for me with exercise?

Thanks to all of you for being there! Is there a med check to see if any of my meds are causing my lack of weight loss? I eat between 1200- 1700 calories/ day and drink at least 64oz of purified water a day. I eat fruit (apples, grapes, pineapple chunks, unsweetened applesauce), veggies (turnips greens, spinach, and sweet potatoes or pumpkin) and protein (peanut butter, salmon, and chicken breast) on this GI diet.

Email buddies are always welcome!
