    I did quite intense step aerobics classes twice after being on c.d for five weeks and I was absolutley fine! However be careful, if you don't feel well I would sit down for a bit. Also they warn that too much exercise on c.d can hamper your weightloss because your body uses all the calories from your packs up and so goes into starvation mode!!

    I know how you feel, I get tempted as well but if you want to tone why don't you try sit ups for your tum and weights for your arms? aerobics is cardiovascular so the point of it is to fat burn, not tone.Therefore probably not a good idea on cambridge because your already burning fat.

    Lipotrim, moved to CD
    I am on 810 at the moment and have just started gym and have been told to eat some extra carbs while I'm doing it. My CDC is awaiting advice from head office. So I don't think it's a good idea to do aerobics on SS. Speak to your CDC first.

    You could do pilates or yoga though.

    Ha OMG when I was at scholl we had to do calisthenics. That wass bloody hard work so good luck if you do them!!

    FF, when I started SS back in Jan, I did a step aerobics type thing and I found I was fine, didn't feel ikky or light headed and I upped my water accordingly.

    Lots of luck, doing it on your own is well brave!!

    Yeah if the instructor thinks its okay then I'd defo go for it! Give it a go, if you find you feel a bit wibbly then you know its probably too much.

    I also did lots of swimming alongside the step classes, oh and I did do a body combat class which uses weights. That one did make me feel a bit ill :eek:

    Good luck flower x x x x

    Meh stuff it! At least you're doing something about it, and look at your losses so far!

    You've done soooooo well :) you should be showing yourself off and being proud of your successful weight loss.

    ;)


    Just remember, you're losing the weight and people who decide to take the piss or whatever will always be ugly and venomous on the inside ;)
