Move!! Even just for 5 minutes!! I started by walking 100 steps in place every other commercial during my favorite shows. I know, 100 steps, not much, but by the end of the night I had about 3,000 steps more than if I just sat in the recliner. I am up to 5,000 steps a day. Something is better than nothing. You can do this! You are worth it!

"Somebody" has been screwing with our lives most of our life. Ignore 'em, honey, and do what you can do when you can do it. You aren't getting fit for "somebody" are you? Of course not, you're doing it for you - because that is the only way we can be successful.

YES!!!!! I know from experience. That is exactly how I lost weight. The 5 minute movement or even 2 prepares your body to move more and makes your range if motion extend.

I think any time is better than none. Try a few lots of 5 minutes throughout the day.
Good luck and remember an exercise is better than none. Read Indygirl's story and you will see how she started a real eye opener.

Hey Kitty I would say if you can do five minutes at a time it is a start. We all can not go full force for an hour to begin with. If the five minutes helps then go for it. Your body knows how much it can handle.

I know that they say you can break up your exercise but they also say at least 10 minutes at a time. Which used to be no problem. But, I injured myself, which led to depression, eatting, gaining, and back pain. Now with the back pain even 10 minutes is really hard and painful. I could do five at a time but someone told me that wasn't enough to matter. So should I focus on only diet until weight starts coming off (my back pain almost always improves as I lose...which SHOULD be enough of a motivator for me if I weren't so stupid) or should I do as much as I can even if it's only five minutes at a time?
