Welcome to the team! I know what you mean; I used to jump rope all the time as a kid/teen (was a double dutch champion in our area), but when I started doing it for fitness/exercise I realized it wasn't nearly as easy as it used to be. Good luck!

Thank you for welcoming me to the Team. Does anyone know when the the next challenge is going to start? After the new year, I hope! I'm so busy with last minute Christmas shopping and shipping.

welcome to the team.

I remember when I first started jumprope as an adult (after many years of not doing it) I was shocked at how hard it was LOL It was almost comical - I surely didn't remember it being so hard.

Dec 2008-Dec 2009 I faithfully maintained a 107-109... Unfortantely after Dec 2009, I let myself get back to a 115.6 - I'm back on track and am going to get back to my maintaining range again!

Hello Everyone!

I bought a jump rope last summer and began jumping on my patio in the morning. At first I couldn't do more than 5 in a row before tripping up. Within a week, I could do about 75 before tripping. I was shocked at how hard the aerobic workout is. Did I really do this for hours as a kid?

After a month, I went back to my bad habits. I gained another 10 pounds. Last week I decided to rejoin SparkPeople and get serious. I'm looking forward to the next jump rope challenge. Right now it is frozen solid outside, so I'll have to find space inside my house to jump.

Goal #1: Under 200 lbs. by Memorial Day.

Goal #2: 175 by Thanksgiving Day.

Goal #3: Keep a good attitude at all times.
