    You wouldn't happen to have a Nintendo Wii do you Pandii?
    If you do the EA Active workouts are great for the bits you want to do!

    Pandii, didn't think you did but when i re-read my post there was just the tiniest bit of doubt.

    Those parts are always the hardest to shift.

    Good on you. I hope you get to your goal weight.

    The EA sports first one does a lot of workout for arms and legs especially if you do the 30 day challenge on hard.
    I started with the original wii fit and lost 43 kgs in a year and then started using the EA sports to tone. I got the next EA sports as well and the step on hard is a great workout!
    Unfortunately since my Ralph has been sick and indoors, I haven't been able to work out for nearly 4 months now as he gets anxious if I try to.
    Have put on a couple of kilos, but know that I will shift them once we farwell Ralph!

    There are heaps others. Also bicep curls because you want both sides of the upper arm toned!
    I do these as part of my strength training.

    I did these for the first time this arvo and my gosh you really feel the burn in your arms.

    You gotta check out this one

    Shovelglove: The Sledgehammer Workout

    and then the videos of the moves are great fun too.

    I could lose weight just watching...

    I found the link about shovel glove on from this website, which is female specific.
    stumptuous.com

    This one covers everything and seems to have a dog for website icon.
    Welcome to CrossFit: Forging Elite Fitness

    You could also take up hockey, or golf if you prefer moving a bit slower.

    And this is for geeks and hackers. (what? me? exercise?)
    The Hacker's Diet

    Basically do something, anything, get moving, take your dog for a walk. Walk faster. Carry a water bottle in each hand and swing your arms. Try not to frighten your dog.

    Another thing I did for knee rehab - was walk in water. And do some sort of weird bicycle pedalling move - with fins on (when I was stronger), in the deep end. Involved lots of arm swinging/circles and knee ups and downs. All with water supporting you but resisting you at the same time. Works muscles without aggravating joint problems. Did slim me down some, but not as much as chasing the puppy.
