  1. I always enjoy your articles. Thanks

  2. Good for you. Taking control of your health! I’m also 57 years old, was 290 lbs a year ago and decided to do something about it. I joined a ‘ little hole in the wall’ gym, lost about 50 lbs. , turned about another 15-20 lbs. into muscle and feel much better. Listen, make a deal with yourself to give it a month. Don’t cheat on the workouts and you should see the results (you’ll feel better , despite the soreness almost immediately). Also,do strength training. A study done at U-Conn. showed that while caloric burn during aerobics was confined to exercise time, caloric burn from strength training cotinued for up to 39 hrs. afterwards. Good luck to you and stay the course.

    Good read. I’m a little older and a little (a lot) heavier and need to get on the stick. Finally have the parts to fix the treadmill that the wife’s been wanting me to get to for two years. I’m wondering if sitting the Kindle on a large font will work the same as ordering and cutting up large print volumes.
