    Hola!

    I just wondered what exercise everyone was doing alongside the Xenical - IF you`re doing any?

    I am trying to do 30 mins every day on the Wii Fit (tho if i`m honest, I have only managed it once this week!) and tonight I have also started jogging.

    I also want to start swimming when the weather can decide to be good lol

    I am soooo not looking forward to tomorrow after jogging LOL

    I got a GP exercise referral when I started the tabs last year. So I went to the gym, swimming, aqua aerobics, and also walking.
    Now I have my nephew 3 days a week, its harder to get to the gym, but I go walking most days. I'm currently training for the half moon ( a walking half marathon) at the moonwalk in Edinburgh on June 20th :D
    I also go to the exercise class at RC now and try to get to the gym at least once a week.

    Hiya

    I walk for an hour - as fast as I can...

    I find it impossible to jog, my whole body just wobbles against itself and its really awkward!

    How do you guys manage?

    All of them!
    I use my side stepper 4-5 times a week for 30 mins and am supposed to be doing wii fit 3-4 times a week aswell for 30 mins but have been taking a break from both fo them this week (TOM).

    Will be back on track tomorow i hope! Have also decided to keep my stepper on low resistance as apparently i was using it too high and building muscle instead of getting a cardio workout! (reaaallly makes me sweat!)

    Although wii fit it fun it doesnt get a sweat worked up for me but that maybe coz im only on for 30 mins at a time! Really like hoola hoops, jogging, yoga and step on that!

    CTSW - your height weight ratio is nowhere near as bad as mine - (im not fat im just too short) but its not nice when i start to run (i did try in the middle of the field but couldnt stop laughing at myself) :D

    At my weight an hour fast walk burns about 360 cals, plenty to be getting on with, especially as I have only been eating 1000 calories a day, unintentionally of course!

    I can't jog or run, I dislocated my knee years ago, and ever since then I can only do low impact stuff. Did you know that if you power walk ( which is what I do), you burn the same amount of calories as if you were jogging, but because power walking is low impact, it does less damage to your knee joints?

    Yep, thats why I do it, as silly as I look but i shove on my ipod and i'm in a world of my own.

    I think at my weight, running will do more harm than good and I know i need to be out for 45 mins at least so 1 hour of walking is Wayyyyyyy better than a 15 min jog IMO.

    I am doing the race for life, but i will be racing in a walking style :D

    I don't think I'm ready for jogging yet!
    I walk a mile & half to school and then back twice a day, soon to be three times a day when Amelias starts nursery today.
    I do 20-30mins on wii fit most days and I'm going to start aquafit and salsa aerobics once a week. I'm just waiting for my exercise referral from my gp to come through and then I'll sign up for the gym too.
    Hopefully this will give me a boost with my weightloss and speed things up a bit as well as helping me feel better about myself

    Hi all,

    Well my first jog was last night and it went well :)

    One really important thing I think (for the girls) is having a decent bra. I bought one from M&S last night in prep ;)

    I actually got a firm support one rather than a sports one as it fitted better - The assistant agreed that for some people sports bras don`t fit "right" so the support ones are actually better.

    I didn`t jog long, Just round the block so I was done in about 6-7 mins. Tonight I will aim for another street to make it longer and I will try and increase the time as I go along.

    I really thought I would be dying today from it as I also have bad joints (queried arthritis) but so far I am ok :)

    I`m waiting on a cross trainer being delivered too which also has a cycle bit so I will be doing that along with everything else when it arrives.

    I do jog on the wii fit but I can`t get to grips with it. Feels wrong to be running and not going anywhere lol which is why I decided to do it properly and for me, It is easier.

    I didn`t ask for a gym pass at my Drs appt as I would rather do my own thing at home away from all the yummy mummies and daddies in the local gym lol I might sound her out about funding for swimming though. Aquafit sounds fun :D

    Well done everyone, Keep it going!!

    Xxxx

    Hi Clare,

    You can ask your Dr to "prescribe" you 6 months (I think) membership to the gym to help along with your weight loss.

    I`m not sure if it is dependant on PCT or just your GP.

    Good luck if you decide to ask for one
