During school, all of my sporting activities took place at school. When I finished, it took a while (about 6 months) until I got something organised (I was walking from the train to uni - about 20 mins each way). In that time I got three chest infections and my asthma got so bad, even with medication, that I couldn't walk a block without having to rest (my weight was at the lower end of a healthy BMI). I copped a lecture from my doctor - "never in your life can you stop playing sport". Guess what, he was right. (I end up testing it every so often).
Good luck with your weightloss. You too may find that as you get fitter, your asthma improves.

Glad to have you with us Denise. I was not actually diagnosed until 2002 but wheezed all my life as a child. I have mine fairly under control but the colds and sinuses really mess mine up. I have lost about 60lbs over the past couple of years and it has improved mine but I also still have a long way to go before reaching a healthy weight. I don't think that I will ever completely get rid of mine but at least manage it better I hope. Good luck to you and always here if you need me.
