Hi Guys,

I've been on PD since 10/22/07.  Even though I've lost 15lbs. since I started, I feel bigger, fatter than ever.  Mostly of course around my belly.  What type of exercise do you recommend to stay fit.  I don't want to be a couch potato for the rest of my life.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Anything that does not require heavy lifting, of course, since a hernia would mean the end of PD. Walking, running if you're feeling ambitious, yoga - but only do what you feel comfortable with. Check with your care team to make sure they don't have any odd objections to certain activities.
