When I watch a great movie, it seems like I can stay on my exercise bike much longer than I can when I watch TV. Water, no popcorn emoticon

Some favorite upbeat music with: tapping my feet and just moving to the music (moving my shoulders, nodding my head, snapping my fingers, moving my feet or swaying (when sitting at a desk or standing while washing dishes or even when reading a book). I also like doing stretching and easy moves while watching TV -- keeps me from eating mindlessly as well as being easier on my feet!

I find that playing Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus games are a lot of fun and they don't feel like exercise.

I also love Zumba. Another thing I do is download books onto my MP3 player. My local library lets you download for free (21 day rental) so I get lost in my book while I'm on the elliptical or walking on my street. It's still the same exercises I've been doing but I'm so engrossed in my book that I'm not paying attention to my exercise. :)

Badminton is great too!

Zumba works for me but you have to find something you enjoy so you don't even notice when you start to sweat

Zumba is a dancing-type workout. I haven't tried it personally. I guess it just depends how self-conscious you are.
Also, you can add your weight loss ticker when you create your sparkpage. There's options down at the bottom.

First goal - From 158 to 140. Achieved on 1/4/12
Second goal - From 140 to 135. Achieved on 1/24/12
Third goal - From 135 to 130. Achieved on 2/20/12
Fourth goal - From 130 to 125. Achieved on 5/3/12

how do you get the weight tracker at the bottom of your message? the one that tracks how much weight you have lost?

Swimming! I love swimming at the lake, I don't do laps or anything intense but I don't just sit in the water either. I just go to have fun and cool off from the heat but I wear my heart rate monitor and it counts as part of my cardio for the day :)

Zumba. It's so much fun that you forget it's exercise!

Lawn mowing, gardening, cleaning out the garage, other heavy cleaning. You know, the stuff I have to do anyway, but when I think about it, it's decent exercise . . . and it makes me feel better to be "multitasking"

Dancing is the only exercise that doesn't feel like exercise! I don't even mind sweating when I dance... and I hate to sweat!

Contra Dancing!

It is definitely a lot of exertion, but hardly like "exercise" in the exert-myself-specifically-for-weight-loss.

Tons of fun, and I met my boyfriend/future husband contra dancing :)

I'm on the "Eat as much as possible and still lose weight" diet. It's working.

try kayaking--awesome scenery, and you burn mega calories, but enjoy yourself so much it doesn't even feel like work (until the next day, anyway, when you're sore all over!)

I agree. Do something you like but it wont over whelm you. Swim, Wii, Dancing, Walking. Something simple.

Dance is the best way to exercise without feeling like exercise. I especially love belly dance - it's aerobic and toning all in one! Ballet bar work is great for balance and helps tone the muscles (especially the thighs, butt, and abs). Hip Hop is high energy and will burn about a zillion calories while you're having fun.

Try dance - bet you can't take just one class!
