Yay!!!!! I've started finding a way to get my BodyFlex in while I'm doing other stuff - like walking or washing dishes. My goal for next week is to start doing some of the specific BodyFlex exercises. Thanks for your inspiration. Please tell us how you're feeling with all this great breathing! You are emoticon

My breathing is getting better! It's better when I do BodyFlex and it's better when I'm walking. This is definitely expanding my lungs.

I'm so glad to see that everyone is getting motivated - what a great topic, Rosalieesther!

I've been away from my Oxycise! too long and am trying to get motivated to start Oxycising again. I did it in the car on the way to work earlier this week and I worked so much better! My doctor would be proud of me and I would be proud of me if I could just get going. That is really the hard part. The exercise is easy and feels so good to the body - all the oxygen and stretching! I notice that I even walk taller without trying when I do Oxycise! that there's just no reason not to be doing it. So, thank you for the motivation everyone.

BTW, Sunshine65, if you feel you are not seeing results you might check out the FAQ page at the Oxycise.com website. I've noticed that question before and they have some really good suggestions for that.

Keep up the good work everybody!

I did Oxycise! back when there were only VHS formats. Then I backed off, never saw results. Recently, with so much more weight to lose, I decided to go back. I have all of the DVDs. Haven't done them all, but I like the variety of doing my own positions when the ones on the screen are not possible. It also helps going through the 30 sets of 4 breaths w/o getting bored or having to count. Doing three times a week now. Will increase later on. Feeling proud of myself for actually sticking with it this much! emoticon

Absolutely. Little Baby Steps are best. I think that one thing I like besides knowing that my lungs are getting stronger (the more oxygen the better right?) is that even though I have a long long way to go, I can feel my belly moving in and up. That really helps.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm going to do some bodyflex right now. Keep in touch!

No more excuses...I can certainly do at least 5 minutes, right???

Well, that's an interesting question because I never really did it for a long time in a row. But what I can say is that every time I do it, I feel very energized after doing BodyFlex and that usually means I do other exercises and make better food choices. So . . . I can't say what causes my weight loss. Sorry.

How did your 5 minutes go?

I did about 5 minutes in the car today and it went great. At first I was coughing but then I felt great.

Hang in there and let's keep finding out how it helps us.

Unfortunately, I am currently in the stop mode. I want to resume and was thinking this morning that I should just try 5 minutes a day to get back in the groove...and then build from that...wish me luck!

Even though I'm the team leader here, I haven't done my bodyflex workouts in ages and ages. Today was my first time back. I could only manage a few breaths. I'm not discouraged. I actually feel this is a wake up call. I will get stronger the more consistently I work on my breath. emoticon
