Getting ready to go for a walk - about 30 mins! Great motivation in seeing this video! Report
Well, my doctor gave me similar advice, but I only drink water and occasionally black coffee and I have a dog I walk daily. So though this advice may help a lot of people not me. And I do need to lose 20 pounds. Report
I don't drink soda but, in general, people do drink many of their calories. Nicole is speaking in general. And people who start out with 10 min. exercise generally begin adding more minutes over time. Report
I do have a diet soda 1-2 tiems per week. Latest news says diet soda is not good for you but O think this amount should be ok. I just acnot bring myself to waste the calories drinking a full calorie soda.I too will not lose weight due to drinking less calories since I drink coffee or tea balck or with skim milk, water and sometimes flavored water. I think drinking the 8 cups of water a day is what works. Report
I recommend reading The Obesity Code by Jason Fung, MD. Applying the information has changed my life. My last 4 years at Weight Watchers resulted in a 2 lb weight loss after following the plan and exercising religiously. I have finally found the way to reverse insulin resistance, lose weight and inches in a very healthy manner. Read the book! Report
Hi Nicole,
Sorry but you cannot assume that everyone drinks soda, therefore they can lose weight. I drink black coffee without sugar and drink water, sometimes seltzer water. I also walk, not strenuously, but I walk 4-5 times a wk, between 1 hr and 2 hrs and still not lose weight. Report
my frustration is that there is no way to record the exercise I get. I am a 65 year old female and do all the house maintenance, remodeling, and building projects. I carry my table saw and circular saw up and down a set of stairs almost daily. I do all the yardwork, snow shoveling( in Western NY that can be extensive) and everyday household duties. I am pretty sure this is the frustration that caused me to leave this site before. I am glad society sees exercise as something everyone is doing - I would love to have the time- but my days are already 17-19 hours long. Not much sitting for me. Report
Terri, I do chair exercises sometime, when I'm not doing really good. My girlfriend lost 2 or 3 shirt sizes by walking 10 minutes a day, plus she did her chores at home and her cooking, Have a Super & Blessed Saturday!
I am doing this. Only drink water, black coffee, & herbal tea. Report
Terri- I can't walk safely, but I can do chair exercises. Look on Sparks or on You tube. There is also a chair exercise team. KEEP SPARKING Report
I'm disabled, how do I get exercise if I can't walk? Report
As usual, I find some SP assumptions a bit frustrating. "One fifth of our calories come from beverages" I drink black coffee and water, with a soda maybe once every four months. Where exactly are those calories SP speaks of so often that I can cut out to reduce the weight? Report
All good tips, all help, but there comes the time when we want to have something good to eat, and go back to our old ways, because there is more to this weight thing than the food, and why we need the food or drink............
....no professional seems to be able to find out what that "thing" is yet. I have lost a lot of weight 7 times in my life, but reverted, because there is not that "satisfaction" there, even being thin did not give me that "satisfaction", that I get from eating more food. It's still an unknown for professionals, maybe in another generation, someone will figure it out. Report
I can do this , but a diet soda once in a while is a must for me, Otherwise I start to feel like I'm having everything took from me, and I just wouldn't stick with it then. A treat once in a while is a must , at least for me it is... Report
