  • Independence declared!
  • Thank you for this information! It's a keeper!
  • One good Husband is worth two good Wives;
    for the scarcer things are, the more they're valued.

  • You don't need the ultimate guru or magic pill/s to reduce fat lose weight become healthier. You just need to try various workouts to see what works for you in equal amounts. Also you need to eat in a good portion to your body type. Just don't give up on yourself the end results are not good. God bless.
  • I'm partial to the Spark challenges and boot camps myself!
  • Very interesting.
  • I appreciate that many people don't like or are not close to a gym, but for me it is a life saver. I am fortunate enough to live very close to a spectacular gym where there are many women who look just like me. It is friendly, encouraging, and a great place for socializing too. Since I live alone I tend to feel isolated and unmotivated and a trip to the gym is often a psychological pick-me-up as well. I have weights and DVD's that have been used a few times but it is hard for me to stay motivated without the stimulation of other people around me. As I said, I am very fortunate. I figure my gym membership is just part of my health insurance.
  • This was a good article to help those who didn't like the gym for one reason or another. I realized that it was more difficult for a woman to work out in the gym with all those intimidating men and machines around. My advise would be to pay for a personal trainer just to get familiarized with the machines. It would be worth the money. I have been going to the gym for nearly 50 years, and it got harder each time. However, I managed to have the best of my workout on the worst day where I was tired and actually passed the gym and thinking about going home. There were many down times (lost job, divorced) in my life where I got the best motivation from the gym. It was true that my healthy body kept my mind active and strong. I had tried home gym several times but it didn't work, family interruption always got in the way. The main thing was to set your personal goal and achieve it.
