Working out can be fun

When one workout doesn't work try another until you find one that works for you. Ask your Sparkfriends what they workout to, use google, other internet tools, your local library, anything that will work to get you going.

Since there are 24 hrs in a day I've been working out to my aerobics tape/dvd for 45 min a day Monday through Friday everyweek and I've found that it energizes me as well as tones me up and takes the pounds off.

Being deprived of sweets doesn't work for me.

I know that if I deprive myself of sweets I will not be able to stick to my program so I found a cookbook called Cook Yourself Thin and they have wonderful recipes for everything in there as well as sweets. Chocolate cake being one of the recipes in there for ppl like me. You should pick up a copy.
