    Best exercise plan to start with

    I am in my early 60s and am obese. I live where its cold so I don't get out much to walk. I need to come up with an exercise routine for home as I sit at a computer all day. Can someone suggest a good website I can go to that would outline an exercise plan for me? I need to limber up and lose about 50 lbs.

    Weight loss

    I just joined the Planet Fitness 3 weeks ago. I go 3 to 4 days a week. My job requires that I walk 3 hours out the day, including a 15 foot letter sometime to get documents. I drink Oolong tea, Mother's Milk, Ginger Tea and Green Tea. I'm starting to cut back on the coffee. I use only 2 packs of raw sugar in my coffee or honey in my tea. I need to increase my water intake. I recently stop eating fried foods and more salads with grill chicken in it or vegetable plates.
