Linda - you are not fat! I've seen pictures of you and you look perfectly fine and healthy. I'm sure you have areas that you'd like to see improvement on, I know I sure do. But I also think that you're hard work for the past 2 years with little results is because you were taking such good care of yourself before you started that. I am willing to bet that you have much more muscle and strength in your body than you did before you started working out with your trainer. I know it's frustrating to work so hard and not see amazing results, but I'd chalk it up to you just being healthy.

I do know about the poor self image issue, but you are a beautiful woman inside and out so I say just do what you've been doing if it keeps you happy instead of trying to see results. Of course like you've been talking about with Jack, it's easy for someone to say things but actually doing it and believing it can only come from you. (((hugs)))

Well, that makes me below average, considerably. Nothing new.

Have fun, if stuffin' yourself with stuffin' is in the offing today.

Go, Lions! :blush:

Decided to work out during games I'd do 25 pushups and 25 crunches every whistle. I did 975 pushups and 975 crunches during todays game.

Well, I didn't lose any weight last week, but I also didn't gain any. With Thanksgiving and its obligatory pie*, I'd say that counts as a win.

*Obligatory pie-- The extra piece of pie cut itself and jumped onto my plate, I swear! And then it said if I didn't nom it, it would jump onto the carpet, whipped cream side down! :P

:lol: too funny but so true. Glad you didn't gain anything new.

I am so out of shape, my daughter was playing wii fit and was cheating on a running game. I said I wanted to actually do it, I didn't do much but could tell I need to get back to doing something, I miss the gym. Might have to make due with some wii fit sessions daily, guess it's better than nothing.

The Wii Fit is pretty good. The hula hoop game and the rhythm boxing are decent for cardio, and the yoga stretches are nice. The strength training is not so great, I've found. For strength it might be better to get a couple of small dumbbells and do a basic routine like this one: Building Muscle and Bone—At Home, On Your Own. When I'm really focused I can do that in about 15 minutes, but I leave out the step ups, because that's so similar to running on the elliptical.

Another option for working out at home-- if your cable/satellite has On Demand, it should have a section of Free On Demand shows, which contain a channel called Exercise TV with a whole bunch of workouts to choose from. The catch is that the descriptions don't really say how advanced each workout is or if it needs any special equipment, so you might have to try a few before you find a good one. I accidentally picked one this morning that was way more advanced than I was ready for. Yow! I could only do about half of it before my legs felt too wobbly to do any more. :blush: They seem to have all levels of workout, though, if you can find the right one!

Great find Jenny! I've got a pretty good physique since I played intramural sports 24/7 in college, but my cardio is le dead, so this can only help!

edit: just looked for it on Charter, but they don't seem to have it :( Darn!

Good job, HT!! I piled up 700 calories last night on the inclined treadmill (+25) and am working out with trainer tonight. One of these days, I am going to actually see results. I just know it!

It takes a while, but stick with it and the results will come. Sometimes it can take weeks, other people's bodies respond quicker.

Don't forget, it's hard to see results ourself because you see your self all the time! I bet people around you are noticing and cat-calling you in their head :P

550 calories burned in a 1/2 hour of cardio this early morning. More productive weightlifting than usual at the gym. Productive output indeed. :)

Good stuff!

Bout ready to head onto the treadmill. What does everyone listen to during cardio sessions? Right now, my iPod is set on a Paul McCartney Live from New York concert.

Awesome selection of music... I approve!! I am without tunes right now, my old mp3 player bit the dust. I am holding out for my new phone (4G EVO) in a couple of months when my upgrade is available.

I worked out with my trainer tonight, did a lot of cardio and running and endurance stuff. I can't lift anything with my right hand, since I busted my elbow last Friday, so I am limited in what I can do. It's distressing. Oh, well. Treadmill and elliptical, with no hand rails, on alternate days. We will think of something to keep me going, while this heals a bit.

hey! i'm gonna officially "join" the LGW fit club! in the past 2 months i've lost 12 lbs, and have 48 more to go! My Fitness Pal has been incredibly useful for keeping track of calories, and I'm doing the Couch to 5k plan as well as 30 minutes on the stationary bike every evening, and alternating cardio, pilates, and yoga every morning. My fiance has been working to get in better shape too, and has lost about 9 lbs so far. I'm getting married on 4/28/2012, and am determined not to be a fat bride!

you guys are all really inspiring! i'm really excited to be a part of this!

I've actually got my elliptical in front of the TV, so I'll run while watching hockey if there's a game on or various things from History Channel or National Geographic Channel off the TiVo. I usually run for 45 minutes at a time, so either one period of hockey or a one-hour show with the commercials fast forwarded is just right.

The eliptical (sp) is a great cardio device. My main cardio mainstays are the stationary bike, eliptical, and the good old fashioned treadmill.
