So I have had a bunch of problems with my bypass but thank god I have still lost 158# in 18 months and I am very happy. I need to start working out slowly I would like to start walking or zumba. I have some mobility issues so I will start in the privacy of my own home. Any one have any ideas on workout / walking DVDs or wii/xbox 360 games that will help? thanks in advance

If you have a Wii console, an internet connection and a Netflix subscription, then you can find all sorts of videos through that.  The Netflix subscritption is only $8 a month and you can get more than just exercise videos out of the deal.  Good luck!

Well, I work out at home every morning with the following: 

Wii Active - I do just the Tennis for 35 to 55 minutes and I can burn 446cal or more than 700cal
Wii Zumba
Zumba DVD - Basic & 20 minute Express (I took from my sister)
Billy Blank - PT 24/7 DVD (Basic - Boxing and kicks/30 minutes)
I also have the Just Dance II & III

But the best thing I have to work out at home is my Total Gym - purchased it off QVC for $200 dollars
(I do a very basic 6 to 8 minute work out) At night I may just workout for 10 to 15 minutes doing squat and ad cruches.

And currently I had to the gym just to get out of my apartment for an hour and hit the treadmill only.

Good luck!

Leslie Sansone has a whole variety of good walking videos that range from slower to faster with "gentle jogging"... I love them.... Zumba has DVDs that you can do at home.......
