    Running and swimming are good for general fitness/weightloss, I also love to mix it up by doing something fun like a zumba class. I would say exercises that help you tone are also needed (if you have more than a few lbs to lose). A gym session isnt a gym session for me without doing a variety of weights.

    Anything is going to help you lose weights, maybe a nice easy way to exercise would be to just start with a short walk every day. Try and make it into a bit of a daily routine for you?? and then if you want to go for something more try a run a day or every other day. I always feel better after working out abit. I have a gym membership and like to go two or three times a week and go on the cross trainer for 20 minutes or just on the treadmill for 20 minutes.

    Anything that gets your heartbeat up is worth a try. xx

    Pilates won't really give you a good work out. Pineappleplants advice is good. 20 mins on cross trainer or brisk walk will be much better for you than pilates

    Pilates will help you tone though, I say any kind of exercise id good for your bronze body magic you only need to do 50 minutes of exercise a week and keep it up for 8(?) weeks. thats only 10 minutes a day for 5 days, so realistically it could just be a brisk walk to the corner shop.

    Its fab that you want to do exercise too, don't be disheartened if you find your weightloss isnt as great as you hoped if you start exercising when you join. Your body tends to retain water a bit for the first couple of weeks as you up your intake while you exercise, its completely normal and will stop as your body gets used to your new found fitness routine. Also, as your consultant will tell you, muscle and fat weigh the same (a lb is a lb afterall) but fat takes up a heck of a lot more space so while you think you SHOULD have lost weight you may not have, but you WILL have lost inches and that can only be good for your health and you heart, which is why the encourage body magic.

    I would recommend measuring yourself before you start and then measure again at milestones in your weightloss (I didnt because I couldnt face it and I really regret it, Ive went from a size 24 to a 14 in 9 months!) .x.x.

    I think it's important to find something you enjoy - or at least you don't hate! I can't stand jogging so never do that and the changing rooms at our local pool are vile, but I love hiking in the countryside and dancing. I can cope with the gym but prefer other things.
    For weightloss, cardio (that raises your temperature, breathing and heart rate) will burn calories. Strength building exercises like weights or rowing machine will build muscle, which increases your metabolism and burns lots of fat even when you're asleep. I've never been fitter than when I rowed a lot - it's a brilliant all-over exercise if you get someone to teach you the proper technique (focuses on the legs and core).
    Good point about running and joints - I have very dodgy knees so I switched from the running machine to the crosstrainer which means a lot less impact on the joints.
    Good luck! Focus on how good you should feel afterwards!

    I just walk every day. When I first started SW, I could manage a 15 minute stroll before collapsing, but today I walked to and from work, totalling 8 miles. The key really is finding something that you enjoy doing!

    Wow! What an inspiration to see your achievement. How long did it take you to lose your weight?
    I must admit I love walking used to do charity walks so I am very tempted to sign up for one to keep motivated. Not sure if I can go straight in to a 26mile walk as haven't trained for a long time but may start with a 5 or 10 mile walk and see how I get on before aiming higher. I've found my pedometer and going to see how I get on. Feeling inspired...

    Impressive! I sometimes walk to work instead of cycling (4.3 miles round trip) but that's a fair distance for a work day! I do like starting my day like that, it's much more soothing than fighting with the traffic/other people on the bus and feels like an achievement first thing. Trouble is, I absolutely SUCK at getting up in time to do it!
