I am 65 . At the moment I am fit and as a result I am managing to exercise.
There are lots of people here who have varying degrees of health issues who are finding they cannot exercise much. I can empathise with this a little .
Three years ago I was limping around with a stick for months after getting planter fashyitus ( I can't spell that, but it's a pulled muscle in the sole of the foot) It happened while speed walking. I won't be doing that again.
Two years ago I was due for a knee operation . The consultant said I needed it. But I cancelled it as I had been increasing my walks and it was feeling ok again.
During this period I was already over weight and I put more weight on.
But then I wasn't eating healthily either.
Fortunately I enjoy swimming and my current success has been due to regular 45 minute swims.
My health issues have been muscular and have probably been helped by being determined to find the time to swim. And also as I was told my cholesterol was high at my last health check. That got me thinking.
I feel sorry for those people here who have major health issues which are debilitating enough to stop them being able to exercise . I hope they can find a way maybe to make some kind of effort to make a start, I have been lucky as swimming takes the weight off my feet and knees.
I have also been encouraged by this community. Thank you.
