Well, It is official now, I joined the gym.  Dh thinks it is a waste of money because he thinks I won't stick with it.  We will see.  I have been going for a week now and so far I really enjoy it.  If anyone has a great workout system that has worked for them let me know.  I am way overweight and just want to lose some weight and be healthy.  Keep me motivated!

Feb. 1, 2008 at 11:49 AM OOHH!  I have been contemplating joining.  I think about it alot, but I haven't gotten the nerve up yet.  I have priced the local places, and I think I know which one to join, but I am scared that I won't continue.  Can I join in with you?  Perhaps we can motivate each other.  .......Now I just have to get the nerve to join.

Don't be scared to join!  Just try to go around the same time every day (or 3 X a week, whatever!) and find an online support thing.  A lot of people like Spark People.  I have a hard time figuring it out, tho.  But I have 2 toddlers, so that's my problem!! 

I'm overweight, too, and joined my gym last month.  They have a program you can go thru where they give you specific workouts to do every 4 weeks or so.  Good luck!!

Feb. 5, 2008 at 4:32 AM The only workout plan I've ever stuck with was basic training and in 9 weeks i went from 140 size 14to 115 size 4 and could bench 100+. Look into the different techniques they use maybe that'll help. GOOD LUCK

Exercise ! I'm such a procrastinator. Especially with my recent health issues, but I know that's just making up excuses. Got to do it too ! I need to get motivated !

You know I've joined gyms before but never kept up with it. When I had a friend with me it wasn't a problem. They always stopped and I would too eventually. I like to exercise in my living room. When I'm actually motivated, I do yoga and some hula basics. My neighbor and I was walking almost 2 miles everyday but when I got sick a couple of weeks ago it ended. She was sick too. Now it's cold and we don't walk much.

good luck
