    Oh yeah, it's the same idea. Great thing about them is you can adapt them. Only got 20 minutes for a run? More sprinting, less distance. Got an hour? Spread it out a bit. Plus I think they're more fun.

    i used weight watchers online to help lose 35 pounds. i worked out at home using a pilates video, a yoga video and an exercise ball video. i also used some hand weights with the exercise ball video. i lost the last five pounds incidentally when i sold my car and had to carry my 30 pound toddler for just under a mile (from the bus stop to daycare and back) five days a week. my arms got pretty toned from that, and that's crazy because chubby upper-arms run in my family.

    i am not currently working out because i walk s'damn much and my apartment is much too small to support such activities. i do plan on getting back into yoga once i have more room to breath.

    great job on your accomplishments!

    Way to go oasispaw....that is a heck of an accomplishment. Kep it up....its interesting that when life throws you problems, something else works its way into shape.

    I've found when I'm broke....I get in better shape.

    yes sorry let me clear up what i meant by long distance running... if you do it all the time, of course your going to loose weight, but you will not gain strength (except for the fact that you can fun far) gain muscle (which technically is weight) and you will be, as mentioned above quite skinny, but not necessarily nicely toned. i think that running long distances mixed with short sprints is the ultimate way to cut fat and gain muscle, though really you will cut fat and up your metabolism quicker with sprints. on a side note running long distances increases serotonine (<--sp) in the brain.

    I tried to get into running a little while ago, but I think I'm still too heavy. It was hell on my knees & ankles. So for now I'm sticking with brisk walking and the occasional video when it's gross outside. My midwife told me to get a set of 5lb weights and add some upper body strengthening crap to my routine, which I think I will do. After Christmas.

    Don't run if you're well overweight...it IS hard on the joints! Concentrate on walking....cut those calories and walk everyday....you will get there!!

    I just needed to get some time away from school to realize where my priorities really needed to be. I'm hoping to unfuck a little bit before the spring semester starts on the 7th. I don't want to get well on my way, but at least get rid of this water weight from being so out of control.

    how's it going after the holidays, everyone??????

    i went back to oatmeal for breakfast, yogurt and fruit for snacks, soup for lunch and random dinner. and lots of water! and i'm still walking a total of about 1 mile everyday, more if i have to run work errands like going to the post office or bank.
