    i am soooo happy right now.
    for the last few years i have worried soooo much about my fitness level (or complete lack of it).
    then when i started on cd some 9 weeks ago i dragged out my airstepper( the type u stand on and hold arm handles and swing arms and legs) and could just about manage 15 minutes and burn about 70 calories :mad:.
    i havent used it much since and havent used it at all in the last 5 weeks due to chest problems.
    this morning i got the urge to give it another go as im feeling much better now.
    So , i stuck some music on and on i got. was very surprised to find i lasted 40 minutes and burnt 350 calories. i was gobsmacked.
    after a few hours of rest i got a second wind and jumped back on (thats a first for me) and managed another 30 minutes and 300 calories.
    so ive burnt 650 calories in a day, never used to manage that in a week and i feel ggggggreat :).
    obviously the weight loss is starting to show some real benefits:bliss:

    Well done!!!

    One of the great things about losing weight is realising how much you can suddenly do. It's great to have the ability to climb stairs. I one day realised that I had bounced up a flight of stairs with less effort than it took to walk up just a few weeks earlier.

    Enjoy the rewards of doing so well:)

    Well done Cheryl!! Let us know if you get really hungry later though and how you deal with it. I think some previous posts have warned against the after exersize hunger thing and that drinking loads of water will see it off!
    I don't seem to get hungry after my aquasize or aerobics though- hunger just strikes for no apparent reason and is probably all in my head!!

    Well done again !!

    hi letmeout,
    no major hunger so far. i did drink quite a bit afterwards and i think that helped a lot.
    i have more energy tonight than ive had in a long long time. i can honestly say today was the first day i actually 'enjoyed' exercise.
    once i get more weight off (another couple of stone i think) im hoping to find the confidence to go swimming or perhaps aqua-aerobics.
    my arms are aching at the moment, think my biceps had a wake up after a longggggg sleep. lol

    Hi, I've been back to my yoga today. Sounds easy but no really tough - in agony after falling over when husband came into room and started laughing -honestly!

    The daft thing is I feel really smug if I feel a twinge from my abs. After all the years when they did nothing - now if only I can get the food under control...

    i somehow missed this when it was first posted. Well done you - I've had those energy bursts and the high which led/allowed me to do two lots of exercise sessions in a day ... good for you.

    and good on you for doing the yoga - fantastic thing yoga. And I love the feeling of muscles aching. You know you have done something good :)

    hi soraya,
    i dont think i could do yoga, im more like yoda to be honest. lol. no way could i bend or balance in the neccessary ways. lol.

    hi dancing and ty. i was so surprised to see this thread pop up again tonight. i saw my name as 'posted by' and thought there was an imposter on the boards for a second until it dawned on me. lol.
    hope atkins is going well for u. im very intrigued about atkins and would think that would be the best plan to go to when i get nearer goal (no need to start making those plans yet, sadly) but i dont know much about the plan itself. i may end up opting for sw (try and stick to red days for the protein) but by the time i get near goal they may have invented a magic pill anyway. hehe :party0051:
