Welcome. You have lost weight before so you already know you can do this. Get your diet right. 80% of the battle is your food. Don't let your limitations become excuses. Find exercises, like water aerobics or swimming, that are low impact but will still burn calories. I am a big proponent of weight lifting and many of these can be done while seated on a bench to take the strain off your legs and back. Bench presses are even done laying down (That is a great exercise IMO, lol). Plus weight lifting will actually help increase bone density. Congratulations on deciding to do this now. I was 10 years older than you when I finally woke up.
