There are so many strength and toning exercises you can do without buying a thing. There are lots of internet sites to help you. this is one of my favourites http://www.stumptuous.com/weights.html

Swimming is my favourite exercise, because when I started I was very heavy, I found that the easiest exercise to do, getting into a bathing suit at 260lb odd in front of lots of people was a bit harder!!!

The safest rate to lose weight is one to 2 pounds a week, so 25 my March sounds doable to me....depending on how your body works!! No two are the same!!!

Well, I have gained and I am NOT happy. I got on the scale today and it said 167!! That did it. I haven't weighed myself in over a month. I walked for 40 minutes today and my son and I moved my treadmill out of the garage and into my bedroom so that I have to walk every night after dinner, or I can't watch my shows.{my idea, hopefully, it'll work}
I just forget to do it after being up at 4:30am, working 10 hours, coming home and cooking dinner. By the time I eat, I just want to sit down and watch t.v. or get on here. NO MORE!! I weighed 180 pounds, 6 years ago. I got the treadmill and got down to 120. Don't ask me what happened. I don't know why I stopped walking. We were moving and going back and forth from house to house for a couple of months until the new house was ready to move into and I just stopped. Not this time. I'm tired of being TIRED!!

Man, I'm jealous of you weight losers!! I'm pregnant and have to go every week to get news from the doctor that i'm getting bigger and bigger!!!!

I know it's a good excuse, but it doesn't make it any easier. When the baby is born, I'll be joining the weight loss band wagon.

You go guys!! Keeping it off is hard (especially with the holidays here!)
