Thank you all who replied to my post. I live on a small island so of course I do a lot of water activities. I do not take any medication for my aches and pains and overall I am ok with a steady weight. It is just that losing a bit more is kind of impossible with what I have been doing regularly. Went for a 2 hour walk on the reefs yesterday which was challenging with the uneven surface and sand but I still would not count it as cardio.

I have arthritis too. I do what exercises I can for each day. It is taking me longer to loose the weight but a little is better then none. The stationary bike seams to be the answer for me. I live where the weather is cold and snowy.A 2 mile walk takes longer some days then other, slow and steady wins the race. Good luck to you I am looking forward to the warmer day

Maybe doing some water aerobics would help. I know they offer classes or they also have video's you can use. I think maybe walking in the water might be a possibility

The important thing is that you keep trying and modify the exercises so that you are able to do them. Sorry about your knee pain.

Since you live with extreme humidity, early morning is going to be your best bet to avoid that problem. Swimming is a great exercise for folks with bad joints and arthritis, so keep that up emoticon And if you combine the diet advice from Spark People with your exercise routine, you will see a lower number on the scale!

Keep trying exercises that do not injury your body. Swimming is probably your best bet, but I would ask your doctor.

I try to stay very active as I have arthritis, bad knees, creaky joints. I try to do the boot camp excercises but can't do all. The extreme humidity here does not help at all. I do some strength training every other day and swim for an hour most days. I'm 5'1'' and 128 lbs. Help me get to 120 so it is easier on my knees.
