    Welcome to Minimins & WW

    Youll still lose weight even if you cant exercise, just keep to your points :)

    There's things you can still do like press ups (full or half) Sit up/ab crunches, tricep dips.

    I know all upper body work, but will get the heart rate a little rasied.

    Hope it heels soon.

    Good luck x

    Hiya - Im newish and find this site great fun. Everyone's really supportive.

    I used to run (not very well but I did do), and recently tried again, but put my knee out of joint so the whole knee was really sore. I started swimming and my knee has cleared up:) Swimming doesn't put any pressure on joints and once you're in the water is quite relaxing..

    Good luck - Karen x:D

    This will sound odd - but it does raise your heart rate - footballers do it before games to warm up

    Stand (or sit...never tried it sitting?) - and raise your arms to shoulder height but keep them bent at the elbows with your hands tucked in towards your chest.

    Now move them from the elbow, keeping your arms tucked in tight in circles as fast as you can - circle your arms forwards and then backwards. You will get out of breath pretty quickly.

    Another thing I use - mostly for toning -is a dynaband - you can do all the exercises with that as resistance. When you build muscle tone it uses more calories than just having fat would - so double the result.

    As Sandy says, though, you will still lose weight without any exercise at all.

    Good luck xx
