    Hi everybody!

    I was wondering, would you like to share your tips when it comes to exercising? being obese myself, I find it really hard to do a physical activity as it hurts. My GP advised cycling (bought a bike) and walking (I love walking). But do you have any exercises that target a certain muscle or part of your body?

    There is one I particularly like to help get rid of fat knees (as I call them, lol). You have to go down on one knee, without totally touching the floor and remain with your back straight. You go down like this on one knee then the other 30 times. It hurts, but it works!!! :D

    I wish I could go swimming but a)I don't want to be seen in a bathsuit (yet) and b) all my pupils go to the swimming pools around and I certainly don't want any comments on Monday morning :p. When I was at uni, I used to swim everyday. It is so good and requires effort from every muscles in your body.

    I should think about moving away from my school's catchment area :p

    oh i was going to say aqua aerobics and at a size 30 i certainly dont like people seeing me in a costume but i wont look like it for much longer :)

    i wont go anywhere near a swimming pool for public swimming and only like to go for aerobics or lane swimming

    the only other things i can think of is
    - sitting on a chair and lifting bottles, tins etc
    - walking up and down the stairs a certain number of times
    - skipping with a rope in the garden
    - walking
