Awesome with the Jillian Michaels DVD. I used to workout to Denise Austin's videos and I somewhat miss it, it is called Fat Burning Blast. I think working out at home is great and will be doing alot when Winter hits. I have WATP with Leslie Sansone, but no Zumba DVD yet. I don't know if I told you but a gal in class fell backwards into aweight machine a few weeks ago and actually hit her head hard enough to knock herself out. EMT's were called and she left in a neck brace and her sugar dropped and they had to give her glucouse tabs. The poor thing, she usually does Zumba in the middle of the class because she isn't that coordinated. I felt so bad for her and I haven't seen her yet. The instructor warns us about moving backwards now so we don't have another mishap. I am still having fun with the class so I will continue with it until I get bored and need something else and or winter comes.
Oh my gosh Maggie! That is so scarey about the girl falling backwards.. yikes.. hope she is ok.. I can't imagine how much that would hurt.. poor thing! BE CAREFUL! .. I am afraid I would be that girl... not that coordinated... at least not anymore..

I happen to love working out at home also. When I got to my goal back in 1999 I was watching kids at home so really no choice in the matter. I learned to love the video workouts. Mostly did Billy Blanks Taebo! Loved it!! Got really strong and fit. THEN.. well for some reason I lost that motivation. I did stay at goal for about 3 or 4 years though, then life happened, and I gained it big time! UGH!!!

Oh well, I was watching a YouTube today and one thing I noticed for those who are getting to goal, is how they finally feel good in their skin. One girl was remembering what it was like to have nice legs again. She finally felt ok wearing shorts.. I have glimpses of those memories, and I am going to fight to get those back. YES I AM!!!

Hope the rest of your day goes great!! Did you enjoy your ME TIME?... I got 4 hours on Saturday all to myself!.. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!

Deb so glad to hear that you got 4 whole hours of "You" time in. Sounds like you were at one time a working exerise machine! Wow! I too at one time was like that but not so much anymore. I am so tired of the start something and stop syndrome and want off that Roller Coaster ride. Working out at the gym 3 days a week is enough and walking sometimes the other days is good enough also. I have heard that losing weight is like 80 or 90% what you eat and the other 20-10% is exercise. Honey, you will be in those shorts and feeling comfortable next summer or even now I am sure of it. One day at a time, one day at a time and we all will get there. Have a good Wednesday, need to get my behind moving and make some brekkie for hubby, oh that's right he is back.

Thank you Maggie! Yes, I was a machine, even had an interview with Billy Blanks on the QVC channel once.. it was nuts.

Since then I think we have learned alot more about what it takes to lose weight and it is NOT excessive exercise. I agree with you on just a few days a week, and living a real life is so much better. It really is about what we eat, because my sister does marathons, runs pretty much every day of the week, and still can't get her last 20 pounds off.

Of course she eats whatever she wants, and drinks every weekend... so that could be why...

Anyway!! I am feeling so good right now, and will stick to my videos/dvd's a few times a week, plus swimming until we close the pool, which could be soon.. hope your day is wonderful!!!

I did not weigh today, will try to go back to Saturday weigh ins.. same time each week, is much more reliable for me.. weekdays I get up too early..

Have a great day all !!!..

Ok, leases are tended to for NOW.. haha.. more later. Anyway, I have been very interested in reading this thread lately.

Since LC will be my future life's plan.. I find this VERY interesting. Maybe this is why I stopped losing on LC?... something to ponder..

Thanks Dear. I am in St Louis awaiting my Mom's surgery. She fell again last night and broke her hip and wrist. UGH!!!!! She is having a partial hip replacement and a cast on her wrist. She doesnt know what happened, and she was on the floor for 2 hours before she could crawl to her phone.

I am so upset about this, but she is going to be fine, I know it in my heart! Prayers are welcome though.! Hugs to you all..
