Can't use your legs? Use your arms! I got a wonderful arm bike that I use called the Magnetrainer. There is a picture of me using it in my photo gallery. I've lost 230 pounds to date- over a 7 year period just using SparkPeople and exercise. I;m disabled, so I have to find ways to get in exercise that don't involve my legs. Herniated disks, degenerative joint disease, pinched nerve bundles, knee replacements, fibromyalgia, clinical major depression and the list does go on. But the trick is to find what you CAN do and do it for as long as you CAN, even if its just a few minutes. Then do a few more minutes again later in the day. It really adds up. If you don;t believe me, see my page.
