    Thanks for this great site. I feel more motivated than ever and so far I have lost a pound. Not much, I know, but a real beginning. It is better than gaining a pound. I will keep working at it. - 1/3/2009   11:38:42 AM

    as an owner of a gym, i contacted elderly people with no holiday plans and who are normally shut in, to spend time with me at the gym, doing numerous exercises to enhance health and balance. i found most just wanted interaction with someone during the holiday season. they were surprised to know that they were not too old to regain a healthier life style, and that a gym is not just for young people wearing tight/sexy workout outfits. - 1/2/2009   6:23:58 AM

    My friend, JoAnn, and I want and need to lose weight and find if we walk or exercise together, we have more fun and stay with it. Now that is winter, we can't get out and walk because of the cold, ice and snow. A Wii fit would be marvelous for us to continue our exercise program. - 12/31/2008   11:43:40 PM

    Fitness is always fun if you remember how you feel once you're done. It's great to run on an eliptical and listen to fast music. Makes it easier to keep up with the workout. - 12/31/2008   10:23:53 PM

    When I am at work and not busy, I make a track through the gallery and do my walking. I sometimes will do lunges instead of walking. While I'm behind the counter, I do mini pushups against the counter or do squats or leg lifts. This gives me some exercise instead of just sitting for the day. - 12/31/2008   5:19:28 PM

    We walk around the park that we winter in. It is so easy to so twice a day as you are greeting all your friends. The only problem is trying not to stop and chat.!! - 12/31/2008   5:03:18 PM

    I played a Wii with a friend had a blast. It would be awesome to have one of my own to help keep me motivated to keep the body moving. My entire family could be involved. What a great way to spend quality time together. - 12/31/2008   4:52:06 PM

    I like to watch TV while using the treadmill - can switch channels, listen to good music, or watch my favorite CSI or Law and Order movie too. The hour goes by very quickly and then I can shower and get ready to go to bed, or do some reading before going to sleep. - 12/31/2008   4:38:02 PM

    thanks fri the info. I am trying to trim down my weight. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about ayear and a half ago. I lost 60lbs, but during the course of last winter on have gained back 50 of it. I am hoping to maintain the diabetes with diet and exercise and looking for easy ways to get fit during the cold months to help me keep medication free and hopefully manage to lose the weight too. Any tips to help with this would be great as I feel as though I am starting over and really don't know where to begin. Regards, Sophalex! happy new year!! - 12/31/2008   4:21:33 PM

    Will start a new exercise program called "chair dancing" since nerve pain in legs restricts other type of exercise and will monitor diet with the help of suggestions, journal and recipes found here. Happy New Year to all. - 12/31/2008   12:08:22 PM
