What kind of exercise should you do? Do what you can!
You do need to do some cardio exercise, to raise your heart rate but do whatever you can!
I know that when you have gained a lot of weight, it is very difficult to start exercising because it can be quite embarrassing to try to sweat out and move when your body is big.
I understand that but it is more than worth it when you start to feel a lot more fitter, stronger and confident.
But just start by doing what you can.
If you can only walk around the block that's ok.
If you have to do simple movements in your chair because you can't get up, then do that.
Just Start with something and you will keep getting stronger and fitter with more energy.
This will continue to grow as long as you keep doing something and don't give up!
I highly recommend walking for weight loss because it is really easy and anyone is able to do it.
Walking is a low pressure exercise and it is a good place to begin but choose an exercise that works for you and that you enjoy.
You might want to have several choices that you do at different times so that you don't get bored.
My last bit of advice is to add in some strength training to your workout.
it is important that you get into a routine first and get yourself used to exercising.
But once you have got into the routine and on track, it is a good idea to add some kind of strength training in.
The Strength training could be weightlifting, circuit training or simple body exercises that you can do at home.
What you will gain from doing this is that it increases your metabolism.
the rate at which your body burns calories.
