    Hey,

    I'm wondering what everyone here does to loose weight so I can hopefully pick up a few good ideas.

    Currently, I do 60 mins or so of exercise bike a day, 50 weight lifts (10kg) per arm, 30 push ups and 20 sits ups a day.

    I'm also thinking of investing in a Wii fit, apparently they're good.

    What are you doing to drop the pounds/lbs?

    All I've done up til now is try and walk 5miles per day.

    Today I started a workout dvd though. Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. Apparently you can lose up to 20lb in 30 days on it!:eek:

    Taking that with a pinch of salt though!:)

    I fancy the wii fit myself, but am a bit skint just now!

    Walking makes no difference for me sadly as I have to walk at least 2.5miles per day anyway because I can't afford but or car.
    I tend to do one cardio workout per day just for good health and to bump up my metabolism a bit. Every day I do at half an hour of either jogging or skipping. I find jogging the most fun because you don't have to stay in the same place and its easier to set goals on.
    I also do a bit of muscle toning - 50 sit-ups per day and at least half an hour of yoga.
    Its difficult to cram all this into one day I know, so if I slip I just bump up the yoga to an hour and a quarter.
    Good luck :D
