Losing 75 Pounds

Hi. I have decided that I want to feel better, have much more energy than I do now, and feel comfortable in my clothes. I have low thyroid so it really drains me but the doc increased my medication so that should help. So, here I am. So far, I am keeping my calorie count down to around 1,300 to 1,400 and it's working. I now need to throw in some exercise...even walking. I run around a lot in my office job but that's not really exercise. Anyone have any exercise plans that are easy for my chubby self? Thank you!

    Walking is excellent exercise when you are starting out. I started walking when I weighed 332 lbs and lost 40 lbs before ramping up to more intense workouts. Feel free to add me.

    hey, i have another 50 pounds to lose after losing 35 already. I had a back operation in November and couldnt walk previous to this for over 18 months so im taking it slowly. i go swimming twice a week and have to say i feel so much better for it and its improved my back so much. i can see the change in body shape now and feel so much fitter, i used to get out of breath walking up the stairs! xx

    I bought myself a pair of gym shoes at Meijer's and I have been wearing them out shopping, etc. My hip bursitis feels better and I can walk longer. My goal is just to walk 30 minutes a day and increase in a few months. Slow but sure! No race. Just want to get healthier and feel more comfortable :smiley:
