    I am truly impressed. I am no youngster and the challenges in regards to approaching seniorhood feel insurmountable.
    I do not want to be rude but how young are you and what were your challenges?
    Seeing you gave me a shot in the arm!

    I turn 44 years old tomorrow. I was between 220 and 260 (averaged 240) for almost 23 years.

    I have bad knees (they grind). I had terrible low back pain. Those were my main two challenges to overcome. Dropping the weight has helped both, but my knees are just bad. There are some days better than others of course. My low back pain has improved significantly. There were nights that I couldn't even turn in the bed because it hurt so bad... spasms. Terrible pain. I still might have some issues once in a while, but NOTHING like I used to. I also had started noticing I was wheezing at night when I laid down. Not sick or anything. My weight was the factor as once I lost weight, the wheezing stopped.

    Hope this helps.

    I am so glad you mentioned this! I just turned 39 and have lost 54 lbs. I have 15 to go to reach my 140 lbs goal, but chronic back pain from multiple injuries and horrible knee pain keeps me from doing a lot of exercises. May I ask how you worked around this problem? Any suggestions would be great!

    Of course you may. Honestly, I just listened/listen to my body. If something is troublesome, I work around it. You can modify most exercises and my PT is great for helping me with this. Remember you don’t have to be doing high impact to improve your lifestyle. Just move and move often. Walking can do a world of wonder for you. Not just weight, but health in general. Don’t get discouraged. Add stretches into your daily routines! They do help!!

    Thank you... he is one of our spoiled babies. He has a sister, but she had just moved out of the picture when it was taken.
