Walk. Walk. Walk more. Diet is going to be much more important for you than exercise at this point. Also, speak with your doctor about what you can do, safely,without risking injury.

Keep on losing!

Limiting what you eat is far more effective than counting on exercise to help you lose weight. Exercise will make you more mobile, though, as you lose. Have you ever watched "Sit and Be Fit"? Maybe some of her exercises might help you.

Track every bite. Good luck!!

Diet change is more likely to get you to your goal than exercise. If you aren't already, measure and track everything you put into your mouth using something like MyFitnessPal.

Walk around your house as much as you can. For me this was a change from "Yeah, I'll do [that thing] when I get up next" to "I'll get up and do [that thing] RIGHT NOW." Movement is movement. If you have stairs at home, work on going up and down the bottom 3-4 of them. And definitely look into "chair exercises."

Put on your favorite music while you walk around the house or neighborhood. Crank it up!! Also you may want to use a 1-3 pound weight...Just move it around your body while you walk. Don't have a weight(s)...Use a can(s). Many days when it's raining, I would close the curtains, put on my music and just walk around the house. I would use my weights in different simple movements. I still do this...

You may want to look into elastic bands. You can find them on the internet or at Walmart or a sporting goods store. There are programs on Youtube that show you how to get started. Also after my surgery, elastic band exercises (movement/tension) was the only thing allowed for me post surgery (besides walking) for the first 6 weeks. Even an old rubber tube will work for these exercises. I'll post below some bands and some videos...Brian PS Don't get intimidated by the bodies on the videos...We are here for support and health.

You can do this!

Sitting in a upright chair, dinning or kitchen. Do leg lifts and get some cans of soup, do arms lifts. Stand next to the chair and do some side leg lifts.

This helped me alot when I first started.

You can do this!
