I'll be starting my diet on Monday, October 4. I'm putting the finishing touches on my program. I'll be using South Beach, a walking program for beginners, and a chair yoga program. I have a lot of weight to lose, and I would like to tone as I go. I keep seeing these commercials for the Shake Weights, but I don't know anyone who has used them. I saw them in Walmart, but I don't want to buy them, until I know that they really work.
