I think that exercise is very important, especially when you have a lot of weight to lose, like I do. It is not that I lose a lot of weight from the exercise itself, but before I started low-carb, I was very inactive , and all of my weight was flab. By exercising, I am building muscle tone, and turning some of the weight into muscle and not fat.
However, my physical condition was so bad that even walking around the house wore me out, and walking on the treadmill was not working either. I could not even make 3-4 minutes.
So, I started swimming. I love swimming, and this made it much easier for me to stick to it. At first, I could not even swim the length of the pool without stopping to rest several times, and after swimming, I didn't think that I could make it back up the couple of steps and out of the pool again.
Gradually, I got healthier, lost weight, gained energy, and was ready to do more. I looked up videos for water exercises on Youtube, and learned how to do those, as well as using the floating pool weights to exercise my arms with.
I am losing weight, but slowly, a lot to do with my age probably; but the exercises help, and they are tightening up the floppy skin where I have lost fat.
I think that the key to exercising is to choose something that you enjoy doing, and then it is easier to stick to it.
