I am a big guy, trying to lose weight gained by a major knee surgery and many years of bad nutritional choices. I'm starting to make better food choices and I'm exercising daily again. I would love feedback on my program and any tips that any of you would have to improve my program to get me more out of each workout.

I am trying to get back to my active ways that I lost during my college years. I have been quite slow to start but very determined to keep my slim figure, slim. I love all sports and activities even though I might not be that great at them. Ha. I am obsessed with yoga and try to do it as much as possible. My couch potatoe days are over.

Linden, New Jersey
Last summer I returned from living in China for 2yrs, and since coming back I've gained weight, been eating junk, and not exercising. My lifestyle there included walking & bike riding every day as transportation (no car), and eating fresh foods form a market (not one pre-packaged meal in 2yrs!). I was healthier with very little effort. It's way too easy to fall into the lazy american...

I am a mother of two, grandmother of one (and foster-grandmother of another!), who has had arthritis since my 30s or earlier. For several years I worked on ways to minimize the pain and increase my mobility, by exercise and diet particularly.  I know that I contributed to my own disability by carrying a lot of weight around for most of my life, although I will also note that my extra...
