I'm sorry I dont know where to post stuff really, or what the sub sections mean etc This is the first forum of any kind that I've joined and I discovered it by accident yesterday when I was researching slimming clubs. Got so excited by it I decided just to wade in and learn the technical stuff as I go. I just want to ask you about fitness. I am a bit of a lazy lump and dont get much exercise. As I hate exercise classes and the gym, (believe me, I've tried them all), my doctor suggested I just try walking, this is OK but when walking I get burning pain in my calves after about a minute or so and find I cant walk more than 7-8 minutes before needing to rest. I am also out of breath. My doctor said this will lessen as I gain more stamina, anyone confirm this? I gave up smoking 3 years ago so it isnt that. ( I was 2 stone overweight then, and gained another 3 stone).
