I know I need to keep moving somehow, because what you don't use you lose even more of, but it is getting harder and harder.
I've lost it now. I have quite severe lung congestion as a result of a heart which doesn't pump effectively, and whilst I am now on two diuretics, it doesn't help that much and the deterioration is proceeding rather rapidly. Now, I get chest pain if I am only walking to the mailbox. OH well, I've had a good life, just was not expecting it to end in the few years I have left.

@macyj and @mbuster: thanks for those kind words. Its all self inflicted, alas, with a body type like mine, continuing exercise of some kind was absolutely essential and I didn't pay attention to the warnings I received from it over the years. I had some decent advice from a physiotherapist this past week who suggested that gentle exercise in a pool (aka hydrotherapy) might help me get moving (had unrelenting foot pain which totally disabled me... luckily seems to be subsiding now) so I am to see my GP for a referral.

Edit: Gotta say, the benefits of exercise aren't just about weight loss (though that would be nice in my case) but also about just feeling better in yourself. I'm pretty much the same weight I was before I was diagnosed, but back then I was also indoor cycling 30 minutes twice a day, and I felt fine. Then I had ingrown toe surgery to both feet and stopped cycling. Now I can't, and I have lost all the benefits of having been doing that at the time.
