Default The Last 10 or 15 this year...

I have wanted to lose 10-15 lbs. for the last 3-4 years....starting with the new year, I'm trying again...Jan. 2nd, I weighed 168.....today I weigh 166.5. My goal weight was 155 before I was 55.....I'm 57 now, and I still have that goal. It's been frustrating, but all my fault... I'll get down to the low 160's and then holidays, special events, etc. come along and I indulge a little to much...My goal is to exercise 30-60 min. a day, at least 4 days a week...my problem is - last fall, I was diagnosed with arthritis and deteriorating cartilage in my right knee, it was painful for a while, but it is feeling better, but I still wear a brace for activities and work... I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for cardio exercise with these conditions...I do hike (easily) and ride my bike to work most days (1 mile round trip), and do Leslie Sansone walking vids with my g/f occasionally but I don't feel I'm getting my heart rate up enough with these activities. I also had a broken heel a little over 2 years ago that was not right for almost a year, although the last year it has been good... I also do light lifting....but I want to feel the heart rate up.....
