Im a 35 year old male who quit smoking after 17 years on the 19th of Nov. Im 68 lbs overweight and remeber the last time when i was fit as a 13 year old. I wasnt doing any exersice at all. Earlier this year i was blessed with a beautiful baby girl and also the reason why i decided to start looking at my health. Ive started walking with my wife, pushing the stroller for about 2,5km daily. This we started only this week. I find it moderate and it also get my heart rate pretty fast into the fat burning zone. After a while i have to increase my speed to keep it there especially on the downhill. Imwould really like to lose some weight and get myself into the shape that im suppose to be. I have this mental block of me never being slim or fit but decided to change that. I need something to replace the smoking habbit before i go back to it and i think exersice might just be the thing. Only problem is that with my weight, im to scared of damaging joints or to get heart problems if i start running. Or is this just my way of looking for excuses like i always use to? Will this be the right place to start?
