Thank you all for responding, and encouraging me!! It really helps to hear from others with similar issues, to see that it IS still possible, if I just keep working at it.

I am working with a knee issue right now so I have been taking it slow. Sometimes I get frustrated because I would love to do more but I'm afraid of making matters worse. emoticon

I don't have back problems, but knee and wrist problems and I have found that yoga is wonderful!! At first I hurt like crazy when I was done and could only do few mins at a time, but I worked my way back to being able to follow my 45 min video. It truly does give you more flexibility and strength. I try to do yoga 2-3 days a week, if not more. emoticon

I am sorry to hear about your back. I know how difficult it can be when your back is working against you. I have had back problems in the past and there are still times that it acts up on me. It can just know you off your feet. All we can do is our best. If you take One Day At A Time you might just find yourself moving for quite a time.

Good Luck.

Don't give up. I too have back, neck and foot limitations. Just be careful and find the activities/exercise that You Can Do! I aim for progress not perfection. Good luck!

Hi JacRen! You sound like me in more ways than one. I'm continuously giving up and starting over. I just joined the 10 minute fitness club with the hopes of consistently doing something everyday. I have one 16 year old daughter myself and have been trying to loose the same amount of weight ever since her birth. You and I also have about the same amount of weight we would like to loose. I'm on day 3. It would be awesome to help motivate each other. Stick with it lady!!

My problem is not a bad back, per se, though losing tonnage would help me there. My problem is tendonitis with my feet. Some days, I cannot move!

I was in a car accident this summer, three months on the couch. You can do it, just take it one day at a time, and start small but try for daily, consistent movement.

Lots of wonderful people here to support you!

I have "re-started" my exercise routine to many times to count. I manage to get about 6 weeks in, and then it all goes out the window. Lately, it's not even been that long, as I have a bad back, and when it start acting up, I give up until I can move again. To the point that I have lost total motivation, though I Know I really need to do this. So, we'll see the 10 minute fitness club can get me going again....
