Great motivation to lose more weight

I'm slightly overweight. I could lose ten to twenty pounds. I don't worry too much about it. I eat fairly healthy food, but don't exercise enough.

Mid Life Overweight Faster Mental Decline has a link to Overweight Middle-Aged Adults at Greater Risk for Cognitive Decline in Later Life. Wow. I don't mind the chance of only living 85 years instead of maybe 90, but I don't want to spend the last years of my life not being aware.

I need to figure out how to get more exercise with a knee that hurts now and then.

I'm on a quest to lose weight as well - for health as well as vanity's sake! Today is my eighth day of exercising with my Wii Fit Plus. I've been doing some yoga exercises, strengthening exercises, and running (since I lack coordination to do much else). This morning I did 20 minutes of "Free Run" and went 3.5 miles - hey, that's pretty good for me! ;)

Henry, since you have a bad knee, maybe you could try swimming at the local "YMCA" or other fitness center?

personal-size trampolines are great for no-impact exercising - and i can attest to the fact that they can help you lose weight and get fit!
