Isn't it amazing how we can walk for hours all over Disney World when we are there on a vacation and think nothing about walking? emoticon I hate walking around my neighbornhood, but can go to Pensacola Beach and walk there and think nothing about it because it is so much fun. emoticon

Oh gosh I am rarely motivated, thankfully I am prone to health problems if I don't do it . So for me it is good medicine. I just have to show up everyday and give it my best. At least I can't complain about the results. I hope you find something that works for you. God luck on your journey.

I have to find something fun that I don't consider it as exercise.

I use walking to supplement whatever else I am doing. I go for a walk at lunch every day, now that the weather is getting better again.

There are lots of ways to get exercise. I get two hours per day doing house cleaning.

Try Yoga with Rodney Yee as his DVDs are great. Also, Walk Away the Pounds is a great series.

I just feel drained by this past winter. I need some yoga. NOW. And a bounce on my mini-trampoline.

I get this.. I hate the gym but I get there and I am okay. I am in the same boat, lots to lose, get home done, etc. so I know I am better if the gym clothes are in the bathroom by the door so I come in change and leave...no going upstairs to change. And at the gym I promise only 20 minutes or so on the recumbent bike, its the only thing I can do right now as my back is OUCH!. I have lots to lose as well and hope that as lose my back will not hurt as much and I can do more.

So far I am doing pretty well on my quest to lose a lot of weight. I have a lot to lose and it's going to take a long time to get there but I am slowly and steadily losing. I have been a member of this board for a long time but she didn't have the desire to change my diet enough to matter. Now I have done that, so in the last couple of months I have lost 17 lbs and not suffering to much to do it. I realize if I were more physical I would lose faster but my problem is pain. I have several issues that cause a great deal of pain in the lower half of my body. I do work, I do walk around at work but by the time I get home I am DONE.
Are there others out here that can enjoy this weight loss adventure without being an exercise diva?
