Good morning Vietnam. I'm trying to enact a weight loss/get in shape plan. The last physical I had, this summer, indicated I was on the high end of normal for both my cholesterol and blood pressure. I'm 187.5 pounds. I'd like to get down to 165 pounds. 160 would be phenomenal. I've curtailed my diet, trying to eat less and adhere to foods with a low glycemic index. I've eliminated wheat and grass grains and have cut back on alcohol, limiting it to one or two nights on the weekend. Though I walk a fair amount, I've been somewhat sedentary the past few years after breaking my leg and having knee surgery. I have a workout room in my building with treadmills, bikes, machines, and free weights. One problem is that when I start working out I tend to overdo it and the nagging injuries/inflamation in my tendons or knees thwart any consistency or momentum I aim for. Does anyone have any suggestions on certain exercises or workout plans that I could implement slowly and steadily to win this race against a premature demise?
