Ya know I have a treadmill at my house but I really enjoy a good rain job. I mean if you think about it your already sweating. Wear a hat so it's not in your eyes...and it helps you stay cooler. Obviously you dress warmer but...I guess I'm just used to the rain growing up here. The biggest problem w/ walking jogging in the rain is the chaffing (sp?).

Bottom line though...what ever gets you moving!!

Congratulations on the weight and fat loss! I love to walk and am also wanting to get a treadmill for those rainy days when I can't get outside.

I bought a treadmill. It's a tiny one that wouldn't work for someone taller/bigger than me but I can easily fold it up and roll it away to store on its end in the corner when I want the space back. I've set it up in the basement with the tv and use it every single time I watch a show or dvd. Since 8/15 I've gone from 208 to 200.4 and dropped 5% body fat. I've gone from being able to do an hour at 2 miles an hour to 1/2 the hour at 3.5 and half the hour at 3. The 18s have all gone from being snug to falling off my hips with no belt and when I tried on a pair of 16s today they weren't too tight for comfort though they were still too tight to look good. I figure in about another 5 pounds I can replace my pants. The treadmill was expensive but it's been well worth every penny.

PS, still getting used to this site. Meant to post this in the October challenge thread. Sorry.
