Are you able to eat all of your calories each day and still eat healthy? I am really struggling to do so. I exercise for an hour a day and, using a heart rate monitor, I know I burn roughly 425 calories. Add that to the minimum of 1200 that I am to eat a day, it bumps me to a minimum of about 1625 calories a day. I just can't consume that much food in order to meet the necessary calories unless I don't eat healthy. I don't want to stop exercising. Any ideas??

I am 31, happily married, no kids yet and trying to get as fit as possible Walking is my main mode of cardio because I have joint issues from Lupus and it is one of the exercises I can do the most.

I currently get around 55 miles a month and try to up it at least 5 miles <BR> <BR> Let's get fit together! Nice...

After the walk, she goes into some calisthenics! I pooped out after the walk, though, so I only did a few of the exercises afterward. I guess it's called a "Miracle Mile" because it's a miracle if you can finish it! Haha! Maybe not the best DVD for a total begi...

I lost 3" on my thighs alone. That is great, but with bird legs forming and waistline going down more gradually, see jeans fitting weird. Last night I was wearing size 12 jeans, fit fine in waist as of now, but rest of jean was baggy. I don't like my belly hanging over the mid rise type, but I know I can get more of a form fitting jean. <BR> Has anyone else had this problem? And what are you doing about ...

I was wondering though, some Leslie Sansone videos include strength training and some don't. Wouldn't we be burning more calories if we did strength training and how do we calculate that? Do we only include Aerobics and time spent or is it better if we also include the reps we did for any particular video. <BR> <BR> Thanks :) Thu, 30 May 2013 17:13:32 EST June Celebrations http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9189x53536955 Wedding or Sparkaversary in June?

Tue, 12 Feb 2013 22:05:48 EST Giving it another try http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x9189x52052558 I have been a member since 2010 but find I will track for a while and then stop and gain it all back with a vengeance. I am hoping to give it another try and make it work this time. I use and have used Leslie Sansone DVD's before and venture back from time to time. I know they work as I have made progress with them in the past. I am hoping that by joining this team I will be driven to make it work again and to stick with it and stop finding excuses to not exercise today.

I started with Spark last November but didn't really get my butt in gear diet-wise until the end of March this year....Dilly-Dallied with that until August 1st this year and got serious with logging meals, walking and aerobics....Surprise Surprise! You really DO lose weight when you eat less and exercise more just like my Doc said I would...LOL <BR> Wed, 22 Aug 2012 22:46:53 EST Shoe recommendations http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9189x49461891 I am trying to buy a good pair of comfortable shoes to walk in that will not cost me an arm and a leg. I wear a size 12 shoe so it is hard to find good shoes to workout in. Help me out please Tue, 14 Aug 2012 20:49:40 EST Fast Firming DVD http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9189x49391862 I tried the "Fast Firming" DVD last night for the first time. I was a little confused because the back of my DVD says the DVD is 40 minutes long: 3min warm up, 34min firming exercises, 3 min stretch, but when I did the DVD, the whole workout was about 26 minutes, with the firming exercises only 20 minutes instead of 34. <BR> <BR> Anyone know anything about this? <BR> Anyone else like this DVD? <BR> Does Leslie have any other strength training workouts (full workouts, not just 5 minutes).
