Jeff,

Mainly it is starting small and working towards bigger goals. Have you tried water aerobics? I know going to the pool may be intimidating but it is less stress on the body/ joints (a family pool in the backyard is just fine). You can start by just walking around the pool, and work on doing laps, or going to a local pool where they have classes for all ages and groups. Another option is to do chair exercises with a stretch band.. there are many cheap DVD's, or videos on e bay or other places like Walmart or even big lots, or Ross dress for less (I've seen them for like 2 bucks). These exercises will get your body moving, and add exercise without causing joint pain until you can work your way up to different exercises. We all have to start somewhere, and something is better than nothing. Good for you for coming back and starting again. I wish you the best in reaching your goals. :)

Welcome Jeff
How about getting knee support braces from the pharmacy and wrap those knees up. it does help me when i go welking. Keeps tings in place.There are many chair exercise videos out there and upper body strength training is helpful as well. If you ahve a gym membership try out all the things on the universal gym there it's for strength training.

Hope this helps

I am 54 and have battled weight my whole life I know have trouble with my knees and the heels of my feet so I am unable to do alot of exercise so then I get depressed because I can't do anything and I revert to food as a comfort. I know Sparkpeople works I once lost 105 lbs I am just having trouble getting started again. Can anyone out there give me pointers on what types of exercise that I could do to help I have to get this weight off for me mainly but also for my family.
