To change sizes rather than pounds is faster and easier with weight training. Add weight training with resistance machines (the safest), dumbbells (the least expensive and very effective), or bar bells or a combination. You need little training to use machines and you can train alone. You should work with someone with bar bells or find a good book for dumbbells. Some people like personal trainers, I like doing it on my own with great instructions. Fortunately for us, SparkPeople provides some of the best instructional videos for all of the above on this site. Go for it!

I am working on shifting from measuring my progress from the scale numbers... to inches and sizes...


I have never exercised like I have since being on sparkpeople... so I am learning that my body changes are different and I do not have a frame of reference in past experiences to measure....

use this forum to jot down thoughts that seem to be weighing you down... thoughts that may need to be changed...

sometimes we just get stuck in a certain habit of thinking .... so by jotting it down... sometimes it can help to shift our thinking
