Joining a gym is also an alternative. Pick one with a spin class and weight training. Increasing muscle mass will help you burn off the sugar. Do not be discourage if you are not losing weight, the muscle is replacing the fat.

Above all consult with your doctor as suggested in post 6.

Trainers can be uncomfortable., Get a dedicated recumbent exercise bike or an elliptical. Far more comfortable. With an political you can easily, read or watch TV to pass the time.
