    Hi, I m 5ft5 for 191 pounds. At 40 years old, female, I am currently at my heaviest and I seriously need to lose weight. However, I live far from towns and I hate driving ( no buses where I live). I also work around 60 to 70 hours a week. So I would like to do some exercises at home to get me started. I suffer from a lung condition that makes me breathless very quickly but I also know that it can get better if I get fitter. I also suffer from chronic back pain that limits my movements but it might get better once I lose a few stones. I have a mechanical treadmill and I have started doing 5 minutes for warm up and I am hoping to increase this as soon as the breath allows it. I then do some dance cardio that focuses on the core for another 6 minutes ( no jumping, I can't do that) and I do what I can do ( but already can do more after the 4th time so I am not totally doomed lol) followed by some stretches ( all videos taken from Youtube). I purchased some tension bands and I do some exercises using a 10 lbs band, again using videos from Youtube. I can feel my arms aching after each time , my legs not so much so I will need to find exercises for that. If I change my diet, should these exercises help me lose weight or am I doing things totally wrong? Talk to GP about it, they do not seem to know much to be honest. I would welcome any tips or advice. I d like to lose about 60-65 pounds so a lot of work to be done but we all have to start somewhere :) Thanks in advance
