I no longer think about exercise and weight loss. Working with old people has taught me that exercise/movement is so important for a good life. People that have been active all their lives tend to do better in their old age. More able and happier with their life and the ones who stop moving go down hill faster. I have worked with elders that refuse to move due to pain or fear or lack of interest and soon they are unable to move even if they wanted.

I would suggest finding a exercise/movement routine that you like and will stick too for the rest of your life. Walking, swimming and dance move the whole body and can be enjoyed at all ages and fitness levels.

exercise can't undo a crappy diet; 80% of weight loss is diet and only 20% is exercise.

but it can certainly help, especially if you focus on strength training.

I'm doing a 21 days no binge streak. FOR ME, it's been TREMENDOUSLY helpful to be accountable to other people and to compete against myself. Please join us if you think it'll work for you too: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

exercise is defiantly part of being healthy and both cardio and strength training are important

Exercising is another way to keep in shape, tone up and wear off some of those unwanted calories. Calories in and Calories out.

Dr. Fuhrman says that weight loss happens in the kitchen while muscle tonality happens at the gym.

Will working out make a huge difference? What have been your experiences? I was thinking/hoping that working out would give me more muscle tone so I don't look deflated or unhealthy as I lose weight.

Thoughts?
