Anyone else starting out of shape?
I have never exercised,but have always been active....moving hay,cleaning barn,housework,gardening,walking.....I had breast cancer and was sedentary for several months.The last few years I increased my activity a lot...but then had surgery and severe calorie restriction for over a year,again was pretty sedentary....I know I have muscle loss and will be seeing a physical therapist.But so many of you are very active and exercising,I feel like I am the only lazy one! Would love to hear your progress if you too were inactive..or if you are just starting like me,maybe we can cheer each other on...

RE: Anyone else starting out of shape?
Sure, we have people of all ages, sizes, and exercise backgrounds. Some people really dislike exercise and do it because they know they should, while others really seem to enjoy it... And you certainly do not sound as though you are lazy! You have come through so much and should be proud of where you are today. I would just start out slow and begin maybe with some gentle walking and seek advice from your physical therapist as far as any strength training. Be kind to yourself and remember as you start to increase your intake you will find that you have more and more energy, thus making any exercise easier.
