I use walk away the pounds programs. I have them on video tapes, DVD's and now I purchased a couple off itunes. I found a great program that is 1.99 on itunes. There are 10 segments, each segment is 10 minutes of exercise. I like it because I can usually find time to do exercise in 10 minutes spurts especially when I am babysitting my 2 year old grandson. When I have more time, I do several segments back to back or I do something that is longer than 10 minutes. I have even done a segment in my bathroom with the door closed when I get up before my husband wakes up early in the day or later in the day after he has gone to bed for the night. You can also try just marching in place (yeah, it is boring, but it works), and sometimes, I just walk around the kitchen or halls. I understand the self conscious part, I am that way and I still turn off or dim the lights when I am exercising and for a while, I only exercised if no one was home to see it. I discovered that other people in my house were very supportive and often joined me in exercise. Just keep telling yourself you are not doing this for anyone else, you are doing for yourself and invite them to join you, maybe they will and if they don't, you are still going to feel great after you exercise. Endorphins feel great and you will love they way you feel when you release them. Good luck.

I have a similar prob with not having a private area to exercise, or enough space. Not sure how that is going to work itself out. For now, my main exercise is walking. I would still like to work out with DVDs, when the weathers bad. Still working on figuring out the best times. Maybe it is more about me just carving out the time & let the others around me figure out what to do.....that we need to put a bit of a priority on our work out times....let the chips fall where they may? Know what I mean? I am self conscious, and that's my biggest problem.

Marly, I am glad you feel you can write here and feel accepted. Not everyone will understand what we do for health or approve or support. What matters is if you support yourself and make friends with others who have similar goals, like people here in SP. You are in the right place. emoticon

AND I closed my Facebook account about 2 months ago when I learned that it was crapola and all about "like this" and "like that". I have more important things to do with my life.

Have a GREAT evening and rest of the week. Love, Chelsea emoticon

Hi Marly,
Post away. There are some exercise DVD programs that you likely have enough space to use. I've used them in my RV and there is not a lot of space there. I don't have one of those huge RV's with the slides so I do a lot of running up and down the center aisle. Camper does a lot of "rockin" when I work out in it but it works. You are off to a great start! Keep up the great work and you will be at YOUR goal in no time! Good luck.

I just needed a place to post things without a facebook friend being a smart-mouth to me--telling me I'm doing wrong. He told me I was going to die 2023; things won't matter anyway, but try to be encouraging in the same breathe. I don't need that.

Yesterday, I started doing exercises on my new floor mat, hula hooped for a little bit, used elliptical a little, and took my half an hr walk.
I done same exercises today plus my 45-min side-stepping, and will do my walk later on.

Yesterday, I felt depressed because I feel fat. A have huge belly fat which I know is a common thing, but I feel very uncomfortable with it. I feel better today--maybe because I did my exercises, but hope I can continue making time for it. A big problem is, I don't have anywhere private that I can workout with someone walking through. Or, even a big enough area I can do anything.
