It's not so much about which one, but more about consistancy, intensity, muscle confusion and nutrition. You definitely need to change things up every 4 to 5 weeks at the longest. Also look at your nutrition.

Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.

I am not an expert...but can only speak from my own experience.

When I was walking only I seemed to maintain. Once I added strength training I started to see results, especially in inches. A combination of both has gotten me great results.

If you have access to weight machines, I would suggest giving them a shot. If not, grab some hand weights and check out some of the free spark videos.

I now balance out walking/running/and strength training.

Best wishes!

I have been using the treadmill for about 3 months now. I haven't seen big results in weight or inches. I recently started jogging but now I have an injury and have to stop for a while. I was wanting to know from everyone's own experience which exercise or machine has showed you the best results. I have a bow flex (weight lifting machine), eliptical, and a treadmill. Maybe I should rotate every couple of weeks? What do you think?
