  • Jib, Sorry to hear about your osteo, I have it in the hip. HAd my knee operated on in January.I HAd to lose 70 pounds before operation. I went to physical therapy to learn what exercises to do to help. While sitting watching TV just moving your legs up and down helps. I am surprised your Doctor hasn't recomended PT . In the meantime I will pray for you. God's Blessings to you, Barbara - 9/27/2015 3:52:30 PM
    I suffer from limited mobility with osteoporosis in both knees, spine and rigth shoulder. I am unable to do stairs or even walk in the grocery store for more than 5 minutes without help. However, my doctor told me to lose 100 lbs before he will give me knew knees. Further, i have not worked for 3 yrs and do not qualify for disability. I live in Canada. - 6/11/2015 5:00:40 PM

    It's always been "100" this and that in the world of "diet", just a point of reference, not an absolute. Just like headlines about weight loss, some one who lost 96 lbs. will be rounded off to 100, or 47 lbs will be 50, etc. looks better. If you need to lose 7, you say 10. One time I lost 67 lbs. and "prevention" did an article on me, but insisted on saying "70",,,,,,,,, - 6/10/2015 6:40:37 AM
  • If you're a beginnier or have any kind of high blood pressure or health concerns, please check Spark's "Reference Guide to Exercise Intensity". The info is far safer than the numbers given. 80%? No thanks.

    If only you really could do some exercises, right to the minute, in order to lose a certain amount of weight, life would be a breeze, but the body does not work that way. Why is it always "100" calories? We are not machines that can be programmed. - 1/21/2015 4:34:59 AM
  • Playing drums through a 90 minute set , fun workout - 1/21/2015 1:48:47 AM
    I am grateful for this site.Because it shows me a specific way to burn more calories. - 11/14/2014 4:14:48 AM
    the only problem with these estimates, is that they are just that, estimates. Every body burns calories differently. - 10/14/2014 2:06:42 PM
    a lot of the things listed surprised me for the time it took. I walk 4x's a week at lunch and do water aerobics 3 most on the list is a no no for me - 10/5/2014 6:43:23 PM
  • It took a minute to realize why walking with a dog requires 6 more minutes to burn the same amount of calories as walking alone...then I figured it out. - 6/16/2014 11:45:43 AM
    I was surprised for some of the times listed especially house work - 6/14/2014 2:13:19 AM
  • This reminds me to track house cleaning! I didn't realize how many calories we burn. Thank you for the info. - 3/10/2014 5:02:59 PM
    Oh my. No wonder I want to eat so much! I have a 1 year old and 2 year old and am a stay at home mom 5-6 days a week and a critical care nurse 1-2 days a week. Never really thought about the calories I burn just from caring for my sons. This article was eye opening. - 3/3/2014 1:41:30 PM
