    Well I'm a couch potato now, but I did a lot of sit ups during OWL. Not sure if it helped, My wife says I have very elastic skin, I must admit at one point just after I came off 6 months induction I had what can only be described as an apron, but its pretty much gone now, just a small bit of loose skin.

    I have read over on the lighterlife forum that it takes a while for your skin to catch up with the weight loss. So lets hope it's true.

    I am trying to do sit ups but don't get them done very often. I am hoping that my walking is helping most of my body. There should be some good exercises on the web these days to target specific areas.

    We need Sukie back, she is the exercise queen.

    Jeez, the only cat we ever owned wouldn't even wear a collar, you'd get clawed to death trying to put one one him.

    Hey well done on being beeped at! Must have made you feel really good.

    Dog walking is great. You don't have an excuse. Do you have a friend that might like walking? It's addictive once you start.
