I like to walk and we used to walk three miles every evening. Because my knees hurt when I am on an uneven surface, like grass. We go to Walmart to walk now. I'll have to use my pedometer again. Yesterday was the first day I was able to go to a store.

I love to walk, but I have a balance problem. However we sometimes go to a large store (like the big Walmart) to do our walking. The weather here makes walking outside not an option.

I have slowly worked my way back up with walking and now am doing great again. Easy does it but do it. If not walking, weights and resistance bands are great tools! Welcome to the team.

Wow, standing all those hours. Did you have knee replacements? Do you have arthritis? Is your diabetes under control? I really would like to continue messaging. Although I have problems I am pretty upbeat most of the time.

Hi,
I am 69 years old. I have been married almost 50 years. I have a son and daughter and 4 grandchildren. Several years ago I was very heavy and had diabetes. I went on a diet and walked three miles every day (depending on weather). I was so happy when I got down to a size 6. Then I began having knee problems. I've had four knee surgeries and the whole thing put a damper on my walking. I have gained 20 pounds back. I had a serious asthma attack three weeks ago and was in the hospital for four days. I feel like I'm never going to get back to my smaller size and I felt so much better about myself when I was smaller.
I would like to be a part of this group because I think some of you are dealing with physical problems that affect your ability to exercise.

Glad to be here! emoticon
