I have a ReboundAir brand of mini trampoline. I just discovered how to walk in place on it. Alternate lifting each heel off the trampoline, without lifting the entire foot. Move your arms as you would when walking. It's quite effective!
I had been considering getting an elliptical or treadmill but this saved me money and space and is giving me a good workout. It's working my knees which I needed and wanted!

True and simple as the saying goes...."Slow and steady wins the race". It is true losing weight too fast can lead you to rebound and gain it back. Losing weight at a slow and steady pace allows your body to adjust to the change and helps you lose and/or maintain the weightloss.
Feeling overwhelmed and losing discipline can be hard to rebound from. I start back when I'm sluggish by a 15 min. walk adding several 3 minute breaks through the day for exercise. It loosens me up and begins the energy. Combining that with 6 snack size healthy meals and I have retrieved the vision.
If I've eaten too much the day before and want to get back on track, I start the day out with a light breakfast to get my metabolism revved up and eat just enough at the rest of my meals to be satisfied.
