Question Best fittness DVD for a beginner

Hello Everyone
I weigh 240 lbs, I have flatfeet and a bad knee. I joined the gym one month ago and I couldn't keep up with most of the aerobic classes
Now I don't even have the time to go to the gym and I've been thinking about buying a fitness DVD and workout at home.
I'm looking for something with low impact workouts, something that can be done considering my current weight and condition.

Thanks in advance

I've never tried Walk Away The Pounds but I've heard good things about it. I would also suggest any of the Richard Simmons workout DVD's. I find that Richard is really annoying but his workouts are great for beginners, are low impact, and anyone can do them. I've been doing Sweatin' to the Oldies 2 for almost two months now, 3-4 days a week, and I can see (and feel) a huge improvement in my fitness level.

I've been doing Leslie Sansone (walk away the pounds - and other videos of hers) and they're great! You can find some of them for free if you search Leslie Sansone on Youtube
Take care
