Well, here I am almost 60 years old and recovering from a major horseback riding accident. I've gained 40 pounds during the time I've been laid up. My doctor just let me start exercising- very minimally and I'm still in Physical Therapy. I am having trouble being patient- have been exercising almost daily, watching what I eat very carefully, getting enough sleep. Six days in and I haven't lost a pound. I am still determined and feel better just from the little bit of exercise I have been able to do. I can feel my muscles working, even if only a little bit. Anyone else out there that has gone through similar situation?
