    hi everyone. I am 69 and up to a few years ago was moderately fit for my age ( did half marathon). In the last 3 years life just got too busy and I did not take care of myself. Lots of sitting down working, little to no gym and stopped jogging. Weight increased like mad.
    In the last few weeks I have had a wake up call. I had flu plus bad cough then developed pneumonia. I spent most of 2 weeks in bed. I started antibiotics then after 2 days came up in allergic response ( never been allergic to penicillin before). New antibiotics started and I am beginning to feel better. I am getting up and dressed each day, which seems a major achievement in itself.
    Is there anyone out there who is starting a new get fit campaign ( I am starting from a very low level) plus I need to lose about 30 pounds. All help, support and motivation will be greatly appreciated.

    It seems we don't have a new thread for April today. I hope Barbie is okay and there are no emergencies at her house. :heart:
