I am 52 years old and had polio when i was six. it worked its way from my back to my left leg which is shorter and my foot is smaller. now am experiencing post polio - weakness, fatigue and i need to lose about 50 pounds......exercise is something i need but have trouble doing it..what about swimming? anyone else have the same?

thanks, sandi
: I am 51; had polio when I was 5. I, too , have problems with weight--one thing that I have found that seems to help my overall feeling of well being is to drink lots and lots of water each day. I know that sounds like an old horse, but it really is true. I still work each day and I keep a water bottle on my desk and kinda time myself to drink so many bottles of water during each 1/2 of my day--that way I make sure I get what I need. Try it--won't work miracles, but it will help. Good Luck!
