Just listen to your body, only do what u can cope with...

I exercise everyday at the gym but I know when I have had enough, and I have a steam and jacuzzi instead

Good luck Hun xx

I train at curves 3 times a week and have started last week again. I felt great afterwards so am continuing to do so.

I exercise every day without fail... I go into the dining room and turn the computer on, and i turn it off in the evenings!! That's enough exercise i think....

I admire people who exercise cos i am Waynetta Slob!! x x

hahaha Su :8855:

well i am a fan of the just dance games on the wii so i'll probably start there and see how it goes.

i was sort of checking if exercise is a "must" to lose weight or if it is just a bonus? :)

That's the plan! Bit nervous actually, don't usually go this long without doing it if you know what I mean:eek:

D'you think I'd be able to do zumba? my sister wants me to go with her but I think it's a bit soon as I still need my walking stick some of the time......x

It can be quite energetic, but you really do go at your own pace.. Having said that, the moves change quick so you need to keep at a relatively fast pace just to keep up... If i were you i would wait at least until you can manage without your stick... Blimey babes, you have hardly been out of hospital 2 minutes after having a major op and you want to go hop, skip and jumping!! lol

Search it on you tube, have a look and see what you think.. The classes (here anyway) are an hour long... If you are still keen, could you not ask if you could go and maybe watch one so you can see for yourself how you think you would cope? x x x

Let me know what you decide x x

LOL!!! It really does not have to be quite as energetic as they show.... Going by your previous record of fitness and physical activity i wouldn't mind betting that you will be able to do it no problem when you are fully recovered x x

Su, if I simply put my arms above my head I'd lose my balance and fall over.......I need a couple more months I reckon.....though I did see a zumba class for 'older' people, guess I might qualify for that unless they've been 'cocooned'!

Question - will exercise make you loose quicker or more?

Maybe not whilst doing this diet, but it's really good for your health in general :) I exercise regularly (always have done regardless of weight), and do 2 strength classes and 3 cardio classes a week. I also walk the dog and am generally active on top of that. I was still only losing about 3lb a week though, whereas others doing zero exercise were losing more. It depends on your body as well. We're all individual, and will react differently. I don't tend to lose weight really quickly, but don't gain it really quickly either :) xx
