If you are just starting out and morbidly obese hang in and dream!! I was in a power chair when I started. Do small things. Use weights(1 lb to start) and a few reps. Do a few steps. Slowly add in a few more. You can do this. Best to everyone on our site. (1 comments)See this image largerSee this image largerStalled and stalled on going out for a walk. Than told myself I'd go out "for 20 mins" hoping I'd out longer. While around the city center I thought "Why not walk up on the bridge?" It was so nice out!! Mid 60s soon enough it'll be snow time(YEAH!!). My 20 mins walk turned into 90. Don't want to exercise? Just start with a few minutes and hey!! You too may go longer!! Once on the bridge saw 2 cruise ships and the bridge went up as a tanker went under it.
