Many overweight people are also very graceful dancers! Are you one?
Since you've just made it to the 40's club, you need to be aware that the body takes longer and protests more for every recovery from abuse. So please be careful, cautious, and stay within your boundaries in terms of what you attempt. Better safe than sorry...
You mentioned a cholesterol issue. Please consult with your doctor/physician about how much high-cardio exertion you can afford to do, if you have not already seen your doctor...
As others have said, make sure you warm up properly, and after your game, please make time for some stretching routines.
Try skipping exercises to improve mobility and coordination. Do as much as you can, or your doctor will allow you...

If you want to get any better at this game, you'll need proper training. Don't buy expensive rackets, use the money for training instead. If you're in the Makati area, I can help you.

keep it fun
To be a better player you must need "the" fun. I can see that you have fun in badminton so keep that. To make your game more fun try some trickshots. Watch on youtube to find some trickshots and try it out. This will improve your handling with your rackets so you can control your shots better. And believe me the first 1000 times (at least)it will fail, but once succeeded, let them roll!!

Just would like to thank you all here in BC for the help and encouragement in achieving my goals!
Im proud to report to you that within the first month that i played badminton 2-3 times per week for 2-3hrs, i have already lost 5kgs
i can now wear shirts and jeans that i cant wear before! i feel lighter and active all day! Because of these, some of my friends would also join me in playing badminton in order to loose weight!
So thanks again to you guys!

crap, i must be doing it wrong... I'm gaining weight playing badminton XD
Well anyways, i've been playing badminton since ~2002. One thing i can say is really, just play.
you can watch footwork videos, stroke videos etc all day long. But if you're not out there playing, you aren't getting any better.
