    I've been on plan (mostly) for 6 weeks now, and I've started doing 10 mins walking (walking the dog around the block) 10 sit ups and 10 push up's a day, I'm now planning to up this to 20 sit up's 20 push up's and 20 mins walking, I'm worried about over doing it though as I've seen peoples losses slow right down when they start exercising while on plan, will I still lose? It's not a lot of exercise really is it, not like a session at the gym or anything, just want to do something to help me to tone up along the way xx

    Your plan sounds good.

    My only advice is to not increase the exercise too quickly as it can cause water retention if you push yourself harder and harder over a shorter period of time. Let your body and your muscles adjust to one level of exercise before you try and step it up and do something harder, but anything that gets your heart rate going will be good for you. Make sure you have a rest day or two a week also - these are very important as they let your muscles repair and as such the fluid build up will subside!

    You should be totally fine though! I hope it helps! x

    I exercise 4-5 times a week and though my losses aren't always mega high my measurements have been shrinking massively (I'm now a 27inch waist!) and I feel healthier which was a large part of why I wanted to lose the weight. I felt there's no point in being thin if you can't get out and enjoy it!

    Do whatever you're happiest with. I feel great after a long walk up in the hills or at the coast but I feel the same endorphins when I nip over the gym or for a swim. It's something I'll keep doing after Cambridge too because it makes me happy.
