hi Susie My mum wanted to loose weight and get fitter but she was so unfit she didn't know how to start. I bought her the 'Walk away the pounds' dvd by Leslie Sansone. There are 3 parts: 1 mile (very easy), then 2 miles (30 min) and then 3 miles (45 min)so you can increase as you get fitter.And you can do it with a bad back It is so simple and easy to follow but very effective
hello, The good news is the more overweight you are the faster it should come off. Its always those last pounds that seem to always stick like a shadow. Back problems are almost always from weak stomach muscles (my two close pregnancies did that to me) so start with just good posture. Try to keep your stomach muscles tucked and your buttocks tucked whenever you think about it. It seems like so little but if you do that you will actually feel a difference even if you don't see it. Walking is a good exercise, so is swimming. Oh and I read somewhere that if you have something with Vitamin C about 20 minutes before you exercise it helps your body lose weight. I'm not sure how....I think it helps with the metabolism but it is supposed to help. Good luck and let us know what you decide.
