We have the Callanetics thread, which is fun and great.
I'll mention Kundalini yoga DVDs, which range from ultra easy to ultra challenging. They feel fantastic energetically and are fun, fun,fun. I came upon them when I was writing a blog for Yoga Journal and was smitten. Ravi and Ana.
Anyway, I've had a couple of years of solo joy in my basement with them.
Thanks Kristin! I'll be over this weekend, lurking! LOL

Yoga naturally uses the weight of the body, so is a gentle form of resistance training but it also helps with flexibility and metabolism. You should find people of all ages in the classes, so less daunting than a gym.

Carly, a good yoga teacher should be able to help you without exacerbating your back problems - might even help them.
I find Kundalini yoga very strenuous. Iyengar might be better for you. Do choose any exercise coach very carefully, some have better training than others. I'd avoid the sports centre type of yoga class, with their emphasis on fitness.

Qi Gong is another possibility.

I second JoyJoy's Callanetics recommendation. Callan stresses being careful with your back and knees and her exercises are designed not to hurt your joints. And you will feel the tightening and strengthening.

I want to restart some back strengthening exercises - think I'll get my Callanetics book out. Thanks for the reminder JoyJoy.

Hum, found my regular tape measure while straighting up and measured my wrist again... 5 3/4. How was I off by half an inch the other night?
I was kinda suprised by that measurement, but I didn't think to double check.

This frame size thing always confuses me. I'm small framed...my wrists are tiny. BUT, I have broud shoulders and hips... So my frame is wide. So, I should be about 130? I don't know how I'd feel about that. The lowest I've been as an adult is 140-145 and I was a size 6...that felt pretty thin. Lots of people told me that I was "too" thin... I guess I could be thinner...

So you have long, slim bones? Golly, I may be jealous (I am your opposite: short, stocky bones).

Just watch yourself as you lose. When you decide you feel and look really good - usually about 10 pounds after people start telling you to stop losing - call maintenance, let your body adjust to the weight loss (it really does, things move around for months after weight stabilizes). THEN, decide whether you are at goal or not.

Don't worry. You are gonna look like a model where ever you end up!

Thanks! I would love to look like a model...not the really scary thin ones, but like 90's supermodels. Body-wise, of course, face is a totally different thing.

People tell me now that I don't have to lose weight, but I think perceptions are skewed nowadays. I guess I'd worry about it more if I could get lower than 166, I'd be so happy, but that seems to be my lowest and then I'll gain 3 lbs in one day and start the process of trying to lose it over the next two weeks again. UGH. I'm stuck in a ridiculous rut.

Just realized you might not be talking to me.

Well, according to my wrist AND elbow measurements, I am a medium frame. My ideal weight range is 139-151 pounds. My original goal for weight loss was around 140, but I may need to rethink this. Several years ago, I was taking Topamax for migraine control. I dropped 18 pounds in 4 months with absolutely NO effort, getting down to 138 pounds. Everyone told me I was too thin. Unfortunately, the weight loss "magic" of Topamax is temporary, lasting about 3 years. But boy, during that 3 years, I could eat anything I wanted, whenever I wanted, as much as I wanted and not gain an ounce! But the cognitive skill loss was not an even trade-off at all! My ENT doctor saw I was taking it, and he said a lot of doctors referred to it as "the stupid medication." He wasn't kidding.....

So.....anyway....I think I will aim for 145, which is right in the middle!

I was on that for headaches too, years ago. I did lose weight, but boy oh boy. I stood in front of the fax machine for 20 minutes trying to remember how to use it and I just gave up. It's funny now, but they didn't really know the extent of that side effect when I was taking it in 1998.

A woman on a forum I'm on is on topa and she can barely string a sentence together, and she is very smart. I don't think the trade-off (i.e., weight loss) is a good one.

We're about the same height, DD. (5'10.5") My wrists are 6.25, which makes me a medium build, but I have broad hips too and long thin bones. I'm 155.5 now, I think I'm going to try for 149/150. I've read that some of those charts aren't as accurate the taller you get.

This week the dr took a x-ray of my back as i was having back ache and he said i had "thin bones". I had a bone density (spelling - ???) 2 years ago and he said my bones were excellent, more like a much younger person! When i asked what thin bones means he said "not good". DH said i am a small person and dh thnks I've always had thin bones. Should I worry about "thin bones"??

Leonak, your doctor said your bone density looked 'not good' then asked, How about this weather? Cold enough for you?"

?????????

Call his office. Remind them two years ago you had exceptionally healthy bones then ask if it is time for another bone density test...if not this week, then when???

If I had followed my doctors advice, "Don't worry about it." I would have ended up hospitalized with a strangulated hernia. Sometimes they need a gentle nudge...in the crotch.

Nancy !!
The Dr. said the x-ray of my back showed thin bones and when I asked what does that mean he said "not good".

So the x-ray shows thin bones!

The bone density test showed excellent bones!

What a wonderful place to get a nudge!

I can TOTALLY identify with this! My husband loves me just as I am......Good thing! He is actually my biggest obstacle with following JUDDDD. He knows I am trying to lose weight, but he is constantly suggesting we "run to town to get a bite to eat." Our kids are grown and married, so neither of us likes to cook OR clean the kitchen. I am going to have to sit down and figure out a DD item at each of the 2 or 3 places we go.

You are ABSOLUTELY right! I feel like I have had lasting effects from it. I have not taken Topamax in about 6 or more years, but my brain is in a fog a lot of the time. I work from home typing medical reports. I have to take Adderall to be able to concentrate to do this! I still garble my words sometimes, reversing the syllables, etc., like I did on Topamax. Did you do that? One time I even misspelled MY OWN NAME signing a check!!

I seem to remember you commenting you had ADHD and took medicine. Have you ever considered this could be permanent damage from the Topamax? My husband even says he is convinced it damaged my cognitive skills.
