I'm fashion and appearance conscious, but always seem to put on weight around my stomach and abdomen. I'm over my normal weight for my height, and want to get in shape. I have spastic quadriplegia CP and hydrocephalus with a VP shunt and am unable to exercise unaided. What type of exercise apart from swimming, would be good for me? yoga? Zumba? It'd be great if you could also recommend some good sites and/ or videos so I can exercise from my wheelchair or lying on my bed. I have difficulty sitting straight and stretching any distance.
