    Does it have any floor work on it? My mother has trouble getting down and up off the floors, but if it's all standing workouts I might look into getting this for her as well.

    Hey kyuuei, yes, I'm afraid it does. But Amazon reviews are the best place to check for exercise videos.
    I once got my mom a video that was all done from a seated position... stretching and light exercise. Maybe that would be more in line with what your mom can do? Unfortunately it was several years ago and I don't remember the name any more.

    I will ask her if she still has it.

    Chair exercise might be something to look into as well. Just google chair exercise.

    but I'm very grateful to Zoom for starting up this challenge, and for inviting me!
    I would not have exercised today otherwise.
    I am going to reward myself with a nice hot bath tonight!
    I am very glad this has worked out well for ye. I appreciate your thanks.

    I would like to enter the competition aspect, as competition brings out determination in me, however I will hopefully be having surgery before the end of the year which will probably restrict my exercise to walking up and down stairs at home, slowly, for 2-4 weeks and restricted exercise after that for a bit. Therefore at that point I may have to drop back to friendly participant, not competitor.

    I'm going to take before pictures.
    At the end of six months, I'm going to take after pictures.

    I will post these before and after pictures in the lounge no matter what. Even if I gain 5 pounds, I will be obligated to post the before and after pictures. Every time I feel like slacking too much, I will remember this challenge and use it to stay on track.

    Is there anyone else that is a bad enough dude to save the president join me?
    Bravo brave flying dogman! I say that's the kind of pressure that would have a pressuring effect. I'm down for that, my lazeass P needs pressure!

A dedicated thread *might* be better for recipes because of that.
    I know a seperate thread has been set up, but maybe a special forum set up (ie gauntlet-style) would be beneficial here. Part of why I lost interest in following the thread last time was because of how megga-massive it got.

    I am sore all over this morning!

    btw: the worst of hurricane Irene seems to be over.
    All we got were thunderstorms overnight.
    Right now, we've got rain and 10 mph winds,
    and only one inch of rain so far...
    They say it should be over in about 3.5 hours.


    Apparently, the hurricane hasn't got here yet! LOL! 75 mph winds predicted for this evening. It's in Connecticut right now.

    That totally puts the "P" in "heeeelllll yeeeeeaaaaah"!

    I love this idea! We can have a dedicated thread for status updates, and informational stuff can go other places. I vote "yes" for Proposition Exercise Gauntlet Forum.

    Looking forward to having ye participate. Could the forum also be a members-only area? Might that be possible? That could assist in keeping things like the photos people might post a bit more private while still in the Gauntlet forum's section...

    I'm in.

    I've already lost about 15 pounds, so my before and after in this thread is not going to be as impressive from this moment forward. I am going after the second set of 15 pounds to lose now. Then I will be at my ideal weight, around 128.

    I am going to work towards 10000 steps a day as my aerobic workout (with one day off a week.) I got a new pedometer a couple of weeks ago so I need to start using it and see how much I am currently doing.

    In addition, I want to increase my flexibility so will do the stretching DVD 3x a week. Then, as both goals are achieved, I will notch this up some.
