Sorry I don't know your first name.
My suggestion is to try and use a recumbent crosstrainer. I have been using this piece of equipment for a year and I love it. It is expensive to buy, but I use it at my fitness club. Since you are seated, it is easy on the joints. Friday, I was measured again and since I started LAWL and have been using the crosstrainer, I have lost 5 inches in my thighs. Wow!!!
I use it about twice a week and I am able to do other forms of exercise the other days. It is a good workout for the legs and arms and you can adjust the difficulty of the movement.
Here is the link so that you can see what it looks like - www.nustep.com
. There are testimonials about it.
I am sure others will chime in with their suggestions.
