So over the past month I have been exercising a lot and dieting. I've been really working hard to reach my goals and my mom has seen my effort. She is in her early 50's and is overweight. She recently asked me to help her by being her dietitian and workout buddy, I gladly said yes. However, there were not many postings in the Nifty Fifty section so I'm not sure what to go on. I am still a teenager so she obviously can't do the exact exercises I am doing. She also has back problems. I want to help her as much as possible but I don't want to push her too far or hurt her! Please, tell me what would be the best workouts for her to start off with. I was thinking maybe yoga and some casual cardio workouts? I know she wants to lose weight and maybe tone up. I feel like it will really make her happy if she sees results and I don't want her to get depressed because she can't do something so what would be the best for her diet (I was going to sign her up on my fitnesspal) and exercise plan???
I don't have much advice other than maybe try walking at first so she can loose weight and build a little muscle.
Just wanted to say its awesome you got your mom interested in fitness! Go you!!
