Thanks for the sarcasm.... i assume that anyone really overweight would know that jogging can be dangerous to the body...then again, most sports can be dangerous in some way. I was just giving an idea...I'll be sure to ask for your "permission" before posting in this thread again. If you have any other criteria for other threads please inform the rest of the population...
just because you had a bad experience does not mean others will...

Hometrainers (is what we call them in Germany, stationary bike?) work fine. You can even mount your eReader on it. Not recommended for real bikes as you have to actually see where you're going with those. Everything else is a motivational issue.
