It is impossible to overstate how much your wise and loving insights have helped me!

I am glad to hear you like Walk Away The Pounds. With the help of DH, who is such a saint with all of this health thinking, he helped me to order these (DVDs and others) from Netflix. We had to change our membership level, adjust the queue, etc... You are so right about variety. I think one of the failures (wisdom) from the past was thinking I had to be doing x forever, including the gym which for many reasons is not a fit. After reading so many posts about "the gym this and the gym that" it made me a bit uneasy with my own efforts.

When the weather in SA warms up, then I will be walking outside again and hoepfully warmer but I think there is a value to the 14 min benchmark for the sake of habit. So having DVDs & youtube as a back up will be helpful for now. The weights are another thing to think through. I don't know if my 4# sledge hammer (shovel glove) is enough or do I need something more. One for each hand lets say.

Thank you for describing what low impact exercising is for you. Have a blessed day!
