As a person who only does cardio I can say that I really don't care that
my body never changes. But, it did change. 3 years ago I was just
over 300 lbs and now I am 160 and I overhauled my diet and did only
cardio (mainly walking 3-5 miles per day) to get this way.
Yeah, I know weighs can help but they just have never appealed to me and
I was reaching my goals without doing them.
I recently joined a gym and use the cardio, medium intesitity usually (low
impact) to keep my calories in check and I know its doing good for my heart.
Maybe one day I might venture on the other side of the gym to try to
weights. But, for now, I just don't have the interest. And everyone says
I look good the way I am so I am happy.
Also, cardio is easier I think. Even if I walked over to the other side
of the gym today, I wouldn't know where to start. I haven't time
to use all their equipment (they have A LOT of weight machines)
and I am unsure how to use most of them effectively and for how long
and etc. Sorry if I sound dumb. Cardio..I just walk on the treadmill
or use the bike or the elyptical and its easy.
