Hi TB20101949 and Special6! WooHoo! This is wonderful. Pam is having such great success. Oxygen is soooooooo important.

I don't know anything about LifeLift and am very interested in learning about it. I'm going to start a thread where we can all write about our successes and what we're doing, etc.

I'm so happy to know you're taking care of yourselves. Your letters give me focus and support.

Rosalie

Hi Linda - thank you for writing and welcoming me. And thank you so much for sharing a bit about your journey and what you are working on. I am sorry to hear about your knee problems. I have ongoing knee issues too. I think you're doing the right thing.

Please let us know if there is something we can do to support you.

All the best, Rosalie

And another thing I just found out: if you want to kick this technique up a notch, then the first week do BodyFlex (or the other breathing techniques) twice a day.

When I was doing LifeLift, my weight dropped some, not alot, but some and I felt good.
My problem is staying with it. I go so long and then let life get in the way of doing what I know I should do for me.
You are motivating me to pick it up again...and thanks for that!
I will keep you posted on my progress!

You're welcome. Thanks for answering. I'm not trying to pry, but I'm so curious: did you see results with either Body Flex or Life Lift? I am trying to be honest with myself and I think that I could fit into a pair of shorts that I hadn't been able to fit into all summer. Who am I kidding, I wouldn't have been able to fit in them for over a year if I'd tried.

Ooooo I hope it is working . That would be so awesome.

Hope you have a lovely lovely day. Rosealie

I do have her book and I will have to reread it, I think. I did BodyFlex a long time ago and then
I switched to LifeLift (which I have not been doing lately!) because it seemed more gentle. The breathing concept is the same, I think. I enjoy reading/learning anything about deep breathing. I know it is so beneficial to the body!
Thanks for the info...I will check it out!

I just checked out Greer's book Be A Loser. It had been years since I saw it. And now, what a shock. All this time (not that I've been doing Body Flex for long - I'd completely forgotten about it even though I always liked it) I kind of focused on the breathing out. It took me a long time to learn how to breathe out like that and that's what I thought counted. Turns out it's the breathing IN is the most important part.

Here's what she says to do, " When your lungs are empty, stop and put your lips together. Keeping your mouth closed, inhale as fast and as sharply as you can through your nose, filling your lungs to capacity. It's almost as though you are sucking in all the air in the room in one breath . . . and it is just as noisy. Imagine you've been underwater too long and you've finally come up for air, you breathe in through your nose as hard and as fast as you can. Imagine pulling that air in as deep as you can; picture it filling your lungs all the way to the bottom. Inhale aggressively; the breathing in is the important part of the exercise because it is the inhalation part of all exercise that accelerates the aerobic process. And, in this case, it is very loud inhalation. If you sound like a Hoover on high, you're probably doing it right."

I gotta say, it's made a big big difference. Let me know if you're still doing BodyFlex. It seems awful lonely over here.
