Hi Pam:

Water exercises are going to be so great for you. Bummer they're so early in the morning, but sometimes getting up and getting out of the house first thing before the day "gets" to you. Great that you're still doing BodyFlex and that it's giving you so much energy.

Yes, I have looked at the Abdonda dvds. They're wonderful - good demonstration with Greer. There's nothing new to it. Basically, I think that when you couple the BodyFlex breathing with any isometric exercise you get the whole program. So, it's nothing new.

What I don't like is that the marketing company that Greer is working with is trying to soak me every month for a whole year. It's just not appealing to me. I am cancelling the arrangement as best I can as I don't think the new dvds and the green tea pills are doing anything for me.

Thanks for posting. You are doing so great! Rosalie

Rosalie, did you look at the dvd. My body won't move real good yet. I would like to do water exercise, I haven't gotten my butt up and ready to go before 9am. Class is at 10. I will get there, maybe I can do it next week. since I;m doing good with my Body Flex. See you on the "Boards"

Pam! Wow! You continue to inspire me. This morning I was resisting doing my BodyFlex and I thought of you and started BodyFlex - next thing I knew - I was done. Woo Hoo.

I got a new dvd called Callanetics Evolution and I want to try it today, but it's an hour so . . . .

Other than that, my diet is completely whole food - Yesterday 0 packaged food. So far today - also 0 packaged foods. This should help my weight loss (I hope I hope I hope - I mean I haven't dropped a pound in about 2 months) as there was no salt.

So far no weight loss. Maybe I'll use a tape measure later.

Thanks again you guys! You're the best team.

Today marks Day 7 of Body Flex 15 minutes each day. I have more energy. I'm finding I don't want to snack so much, and when I do it is healthy fruit or 100 calorie thing. I didn't get weighed today But so far I have dropped 6 pounds. I need to weigh in daily per Dr.'s request. Because of possible heart troubles. I mostly sit in my chair to do the exercise, then turn the chair around to lean on the back of it to do hip and leg extension. Pretty soon though, I'll be on the floor doing them all. I feel stronger everyday. I'm so glad I found this group and re-found my Body Flex Program. emoticon

Thanks for that wonderful quote from Chris, Caroline. We all need to remember that.

And don't worry about not doing BodyFlex yet. We hope you enjoy it once you find out what it is. Maybe we'll start a discussion on "What is BodyFlex?" One great thing about it is that it only takes 15 minutes (or even less) and then you can still do other exercise, but at least you got your blood full of oxygen and your diaphragm gets exercise (especially important as we age).

Exercise! What a great thing!

Tuesday, walked one mile rode stationary bike for one hour.
Today 8-10-11 swimming for one hour. I'm new to this team so I have not done BodyFlex yet. And just because I maybe putting more time into exercise then some of you doesn't mean that you should feel like you need to also, Let me quote Chris Downie from the book The Spark. "Secret of Success: Don't give up! Start small, stay consistent, and build momentum".
