Dash - I too have a lot of medical issues and often am short of breath. I find it easiest for me to exercise in the water. You can do the whole range of motion without having to keep your balance against gravity and it is less of a strain on the body. Perhaps you could try an aquafit class to see if it is the thing for you but I would advise you to consult your Dr. first before starting any regular exercise program. Check out the Water Aeobics Team and the Chair Exercise Team on here. There may also be other teams concerning your personal medical issues - try typing the name into the search area above and see what comes up. They might have some specific ideas.

10 STEPS TO SELF-CARE - If it feels wrong, don't do it; Say "exactly" what you mean; Don't be a people pleaser; Trust your instincts; Never speak bad about yourself; Never give up on your dreams; Don't be afraid to say "No"; Don't be afraid to say "Yes"; Be kind to yourself; Let go of what you can't control; Stay away from drama and negativity as much as possible.

Hi All,
My ambition is to lose weight and keep it off but I have a few health issues. 1. I'm a former smoker and have copd, asthma, and cad. I get short of breath a lot and it interferes with my workouts. I don't want to fail before I even get started so I need a lot of advice. Can anyone help me out with this?
