I am going to start with the videos for 3 days a week and then the cardio. I do have an elliptical machine and a treadmill. I also have a Curves membership that has the Jillian Michaels on the circuit. So I will incorporate all these together and hope to lose weight and tone up.
I am very limited in what exercises I can do due to my left knee total replacement 3 years ago which did not go very well. I am still in on-going pain after several surgeries on this same knee over the past 3 years. I'm also having terrible low back pain. At the present time I am doing water therapy at our local Aqua Care Center but I don't know how much longer I will be able to do that because the pain is getting worse instead of better. So, I'm looking for suggestions on what I can do to get some exercise in. I do all of my regular routine things every day with tears in my eyes due to the pain but I know it is better to get up and do some type of movement than none at all. However I don't know if I'm getting enough to count towards losing weight. Help! SweetPotatoPie1
I don't believe regular exercise itself can bring down the weight. There should be some exact plan under some weight loss clinic. I have implemented the weight loss exercise program of Credit valley clinic. Their proper guidance helps me to achieve the shape and weight of my dreams. Exercise could be used to increase the resting metabolic rate and retain the reduced weight.
I do not have a way to view the videos, however, I have a manual treadmill, yoga mat and guide book, and work out bands and walking weights. I will utilize these. Today, November 4, 2013 will be treadmill day. :P
I am a boarder line diabetic. I don't want to cross that line. My weight ballooned up 25 pounds recently for no reason. I can't seem to get it together and get my weight loss back on track. I hope that this will help boost me. I also just signed up for spark people. I look forward to this challenge and the help from this sight.
has the videos really helped anyone? or do you all do your own thing? if so what? I need to lose pounds and have left several messages to meet people on here and no one has responded!! trying to get feedback since Im diabetic as well
I also have COPD , so it's hard for me . I have been doing the sitting ones. I have found. I have already lost 3 lbs in the few days I have been here.Dite also LOL
I am going to start with the videos tomorrow am. not sure which ones yet, but like the idea of having many to choose from. thank you
Here's a silly comment, where are the TONING videos?
Today is my 30th Birthday, I just found out that I have type 2 diabetes, I had gestational type 2 when I was pregnant with my baby girl who is now 18 and a half months now. and I recently quite smoking not even a month ago. I have been fighting with my weight for years now but nothing this bad, I need help I am doing this alone and I really don't know what kind of food to be eating, what exercises to be doing, I don't get my medication till next week I think, I will find out on Friday when im supposed to be starting that, I go in to Edmonton on the 17th for a breast reduction and I know im not allowed to do much for at least 6 weeks after the surgery, I am going to start taking a weight loss supplement to help me lose the weight and I also know how to check my blood sugars, I have goals and know what steps I have to take but I get upset and don't keep track when I don't see the progress or get the feed back, is there anyone out there that can help motivate me to stay on track
I have been diabetic for 15+ years and am currently swimming at college. I have a ton of first-hand experience with exercising and diabetes and would love to share to you guys an article I wrote about the subject. If you're interested just check out the link below and let me know if you like the information.
This is great! I can do these in the morning or evening. This should keep me motivated.
Thank you for this information. I am a type 2 diabetic and limited mobility. These excerces are just right for me.
Funny.... A few years ago, I tried to get my sister to join Spark. She was told she COULD NOT join because she IS a DIABETIC! Now, you are providing exactly the things she came here for in the first place and was turned away.
I have been following the plan so far I feel great. I do find it difficult to understand where to post completed goals on the community board.
