Get some exercise tapes or CD's.  You can buy them online at Amazon, you can find them at thrift stores, bookstores and the library.  Good luck.  Let us know how you're doingt.

A big fudge sundae afterward can help in the incentive area.  No exercise, no fudge sundae.  No used calories, no gained calories. When we see others' successes, though, we need to remember that "Rome wasn't built in a day".

I have been involved in fitness for over 20 years, and I have found you need to make it a lifestyle. I do not like to diet,so I eat what I want, healthily 80% of the time. Exercise is a must not only for the health benefits but to speed up weight loss and keep if off. I am a Physical Fitness Specialist, received my certification from The Cooper Institute in Dallas Texas. We make time for the things we value. If you value your health, it is a blessing to wake up and take care of what God has given you.

And the weight comes back on. Well, I used to do that, too. It's better to find a food plan that you can live with. :) Andiepie17

Hi! I'm on the 17 day diet. Day # 23 plus 1 week (I started a week before, just cutting down & psyching up while I waited for the book to be delivered). It's going well. Actually I am not hungry or bored...yet. I want to lose 70 pounds and kick the diabetes. I think that may be possible. Here's the "rub": I've been on a diet since 1958. I was really good at it for the 1st 30 years, by skipping meals and eating salad ALL the time. I started losing the battle, when I started to eat like a "normal" person. Needless to say, my "furnace" had long since stopped burning. (I am sure if there was a world-wide famine, I'd be the last "man" left standing. Then the pounds gradually got on-off-on-off-on-on-on. Turned 40, turned 50, had a hysterectomy, stopped smoking, turned 60 and VOILA! I liked the 17 day approach. I know that carbs don't agree with me...the fewer the better, and so far I've checked the carbs, increased the protein and feel really well. I won't get too excited. If I can get past 20 lbs. I'll "git 'er done! PS: I've lost 7 lbs. and several inches.

I'm on my way out the door from work as a teacher aide at the local high school. School started back at the first part of August which I hated! But now the finals are done, and I'm out of here for three weeks. I've done real well keeping the weight off! Wishing you a most happy Christmas and New Year! Andiepie17
