Welcome. Your English is fine. It is hard when we get a little older because our bodies are not as flexible as they were even ten years ago.

Start slower and add only a few minutes a week to your exercise routine. There are many exercises you don't have to use your stomach muscles for.

My son lived in Argentina for a couple of years and returned recently. He loved his time there.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Life is short! Break the rules! Forgive quickly! Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably.. And never regret anything that made you smile The best things in life are free.

Women are angels, when someone one bends or breaks their wings, they simply continue fly -- on a broomstick -- because they are flexible.

Welcome. Your English is just fine! Well, I hope the pain gets under control. That will obviously allow you to do more physical activity.

At least keep reading and posting. There is a lot of information and inspiration to be found on this site.



Love is the root of all things good in life.

Hi,
Iím a 50 years old pal living in French Canada born in Argentina. We emigrated in 2003 and I steadily gained weight since.
Itís not the first time, but itís the worst. Every time I gained weight before, I managed to lose it with a lot of exercise. I was never able to reduce the size of the portions, but I was able to eat only vegetables, in huge quantities. At that time we had somebody to prepare the salads, something unthinkable after the emigration.
I was also in a physical condition that allowed me to easily (re)initiate my physical activity. 5 minutes today, 10 minutes the following week, doing weights, etc, I lost weight faster than I expected, I even manage to participate in 10 km in 2002.
Unfortunately, I did something wrong and I have a hernia. I also gained more weight than before. My biggest weight in Argentina was 118 kg, now Iím in 130 kg.
There is also the general joint pain; I have 1 gr. of Tylenol every day.
This, added to the fact that for almost 9 months Iíve been working non stop in a big project, let me in a very bad physical state.
This is my vicious circle: Iím not able to reduce my portions, but I find extremely difficult to begin exercising. I get tired walking; I canít run more than one minute.
I hope my English is not too bad, Iím doing my best.
