    It is a BFD even if all the rest of the issues remain.

    Are you interested in hearing from people about what they've tried and found helpful in terms of exercise?

    When I was just starting back, restorative yoga was all I could handle. I especially looked forward to savasana (corpse) pose, since that was very restful. I've gone to more strenuous classes since, and there is a big difference. I think I like the slower, easier ones better.

    Then I ventured into qi gong, which I have also enjoyed very much. My instructor is not terribly pushy about what we accomplish, but over time I guess I've learned a fair amount. The movements are gentle but thorough, if that makes any sense.

    I like t'ai chi too, but my schedule just hasn't accommodated the classes I could take.

    All of these are low-impact, low-stress exercises which might be of some use to you as an easy way to get a workout. If you're looking for aerobic workouts, maybe someone else with more experience can share what they've liked about what they've tried.

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
