Hi Lori. Welcome. I am in Schaumburg myself but lived in Chicago my whole life. Awesome that your fitness center is so close. With all your health issues, maybe some water aerobics can help you like Mike stated. It's low impact and provides a great workout. This is a great site to talk about anything really since everyone has been or is in your shoes. Everyone is on a journey to get healthy and we hope you are able to find great support like I have here. Good luck and don't be a stranger!
