hi to everyone

exercise is my biggest downfall when it comes to weight loss. Some physical restrictions made it difficult to plunge in head on, so I settled for walking each day but then things would crop up at the time of my allotted exercise time, like a bill that needed paying quickly, people popping in, etc etc. I have now gone out and bought a treadmill, which I notice a lot of others aren't keen on, but I am walking 4km each and every day no excuses and in the past I would be lucky to clock that up in a month.
Would love to hear some treadmill success stories...

Hi Aquarian. I don't have a treadmill at home chiefly because I don't have the space for it so I will use one at the gym from time to time. Mostly though I walk outdoors as I love to get out amongst it. I still think walking (either outdoors or on a treadmill) is excellent exercise so well done and keep up the great effort.

Walking, whether or not on a treadmill, is great exercise and it sounds like a really wise investment for you. The thing I like about treadmills is that you know exactly how far you've gone and how fast you're going... and you can watch telly :lol: The thing I like about outdoors is the fresh air, the undulating ground and seeing all the other people out and about exercising too :) Keep up the good effort.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

thanks for the encouragement, I like to enjoy my walks along the best beaches in the world ( Byron and Gold Coast) so having my exercise already under my belt through the treadmill lets me really take it all in rather than worrying about how far I've walked or how fast I am going and I will get around to putting a telly near my treadmill when it starts to get tedious. Unfortunately Kate I can't incorporate weights into my routine, as temptng as it is... I am impatient by nature... and I know this would speed things along
:D

I think having something at home to exercise on is great because it cuts out the excuses, I have a cross trainer which I love, and I can get on it anytime of the day sometimes in my p.js or in my daggy cant be seen in public clothes!

I can relate to what you are saying yy, sometimes my exercise attire consists of last nights boxer shorts tee shirt and NO BRA! It's wonderful. (though if i ever venture into jogging I will need to reconsider the bra thing)

No Bra, don't I wish. If I didn't wear one, my knees would keep hitting my boobs as I walked :lol:

Even if you are doing exercise in your pj's its still a good idea to wear a bra even if you don't need to wear one because the movement is causing skin tissue to tear.

There are times when I want to go braless too (especially TTOM when by breast are so sore and tender) but like others I would be knocking myself out cold.

Hi Aquarian, yes, walking is a great way to exercise. If you are at home, I find that dancing is a really good way to exercise without any equipment (you need a music player of some sort though)
