I am just desperate and I need help and support to loss weight. More important I need to exercise. I will be 70 in November, have had double knee replacement so I have no excuse. I just need motivation to get going. Is there anyone who could be my exercise buddy.

I have a foot condition, and a rebounder is great, doesn't cause pain or flare ups. I got one of the cheapest ones on amazon. Here's some articles that talk about the benefits of rebounding:
