For information and support on working with resistance bands and bodyweight exercises go to the Spark team Resistance Band and Bodyweight Training.
The set of bands the previous poster listed are the ones I recommend also.

Weights can be pricey, but I bought an awesome set of 3 resistance bands that you can use separately or combine 2 or all 3 different ways to customize your resistance. They're Gold's Gym brand, and they were about $15 at WalMart. Strength training definitely helps your body in SO many ways!!
While that activity will provide cardio and some limited muscle coordingation work adding a good bodyweight exercise programme will produce additional long term benefits and can be done anywhere, anytime.
I can not afford to buy the equipment that everyone uses here. I come up with the decision to do belly dancing. No extra equipment needed. It is also easy on the muscles and joints. I have lost 5 lbs in 2 and a half weeks
