Thank you, Beth!
I've been reading some of your threads. I have a rebounder but haven't really used it. I'm 63, in decent shape, about 10 lbs to lose, all my bloodwork is excellent.
My only "body issue" is a wonky hip, lol. An orthopedic surgeon told me almost three years ago that I needed a hip replacement. I was having major pain then, but in the years since, my own "home remedies" along with massage and chiropractic has kept me virtually pain free.
I just can't bring myself to go to the hospital and say, "I'm feeling great and in NO pain, please rip my hip out!" I do try to limit my high-impact exercise. I'm pretty upset that walking 5 miles a day is something I must give up, but I'm swiming twice a week, I have a glider and a recumbant bike, so there are some options.
I've read all the health benefits of rebounding and would like them all, lol. Mostly, right now, I'm wanting aerobic exercise because I notice on days that I swim my blood pressure is perfect, whereas on other days it can be a bit high. So I know exercise is the answer for cardiovascular health.
I'm cautious about inflaming the hip again, so I'm only doing about 2 minutes of rebounding at a time. We'll see.
Happy to be here,
