Welcome back. Don't try and do too much too soon. You don't want to hurt yourself or burn out before you get going. Try walking. It's easy to do and a great low impact exercise.

You are just one decision away from a milestone in your life. That this what was important for me. Making the decision that I wanted to be healthy. That's it. Sound good? Then just get on this site. Do it for the long run. Not a sprint. Just get started. Do it for those who love you. Do it for yourself.
For us older women, I really advise strength training and weights. Yes, I put in a lot of cardio too. But I am realizing more and more that I absolutely have to keep pushing with the strength training to keep my metabolism up.
