  • Pyne, maybe you can read about running, while you are sitting ...and turning pages. At best you can give it a shot.
    Actually it would be nice if we all could loose weight doing something we like...but that is not always the case.

    This is so true. I have a treadmill at home, but I don't like walking on the treadmill much. so I don't do it very often. However, I love Zumba and I enjoy doing that at least 3 times per week.
