    Has anyone been doing the exercises or are you like me and you do your own thing?

    The whole of our group has a laugh when he comes on the DVD - I have not watched mine at all to be honest & I prefer to do my own thing - I have managed to walk/run twice this week and was going out last night but it was far to windy & rainy.

    I do feel so much better when I have been out on a good walk/run and finding that I am able to run for longer each time I go.

    My mind switches off once that section comes on. If I am going to exercise I am going to go for it, not ponce around! Angela x

    I have received the exercise DVD from my group but being unable to hear a thing the personal trainer said, I won't be using it!

    But just out of curiosity, what is it about him that makes you laugh?

    Yep, he makes me cringe, can't quite put my finger on why, but if I did the exercises he advocates i would have about a 250% drop in my current regime. And, yes, i know, some people have never exercised, but it would be nice if he did something for all of us. I could be personal about him and why I laugh, but feel that that is unnecessary and cruel.

    I think he's OK but the level of exercise is pretty low - I suppose it's aimed at people who have never exercised. I haven't watched the dvd as my present regime is enough for me and it's part of my routine so should be sustainable. I think his legs look like cyclist legs i.e. I'm sure he shaves them! Mens legs don't usually look so smooth and shiny!

    Still better than the woman who sticks her tongue out at the end of every sentence and the other one who thinks everyone's problems can be solved with a scarf!!!

    Oh God, it's the cardies that got me! Save me from scarves and cardies! What about the puppets?

    Actually, I kinda miss those evenings, sitting in front of the TV with the other women in the group, roaring with laughter at some of the classic moments. I don't know what our counsellor must have thought!

    To anyone who has not watched any of the DVDs, they're not all bad, really. We just remember certain bits!

    I can relate to the comments to the exercise man - but what I really miss is Simon! Now I have gone over to Developement I miss his gorgous smiling face each week - I developed quite a crush!!
