  • Do it! There’s a great opportunity in all of this. YouTube has exercise routines for all fitness levels and abilities and many need no equipment. Wishing you all the best and keep us posted on how it’s going!
  • I’ve lost over 120 lbs in the last two years. Stretchy clothing (athleisure?) has helped me not spend a small fortune on clothes as you can usually get 2 (or more ) sizes out of something that stretches. You might check out Hanes/ Just My Size online. They have some basic clothing with stretch that is reasonably priced and…
  • I thought the guy in the green shirt was your father! You look so much younger!
  • The question is, what do you ENJOY doing? Or think that you would enjoy? I was never a good dancer but I tried Zumba and now I’m hooked! Tried a Couple of Step routines online because it fascinates me. Whew, that was a workout for both the mind and body! Best of luck, you can do it!
  • For those who miss dancing, there’s tons of dance exercise on YouTube. I’m addicted to Zumba and The Fitness Marshall (although I have to admit some stuff I have to modify quite a bit.). The Balanced Life with Robin Long is great for those who like Pilates - and Pilates does not take up much room.

For those of us who’ve been on this journey for awhile (I’ve lost 122 lbs in the last 2 years and conquered the autoimmune disease that had me bedridden for 13 years) we can…
  • Excellent advice!!! I’ve lost 120 lbs and have another 45 or so to go. 88olds advice is what I would have said too. My goal was to lose 1 lb a week. In the beginning, I lost more. I also hit a 6 month plateau (which food tracking helped me overcome!) the second half of last year. As it stands, even with the plateau, I’ve…
  • I love “The Balanced Life with Robin Long”. She has a ton of free stuff and a subscription option as well. My BFF teaches Pilates and has found her style to be very engaging for all levels.
  • I’m 56 and have been struggling with a rare autoimmune disease for 15 years. It damaged many organs and left me blind in one eye. During the illness I was in incredible pain which definitely dissuaded me from exercising. My highest weight was 343. For the past 20 months I’ve been on a healing journey. I started at 307 lbs…
