Exercise

I'm just wondering... how often does everyone exercise? Is it really important to get good exercise? I want to join the YMCA to go swimming, or a dance class or something because that would be fun. Does anyone know of a way to get a discount because you are pregnant? I don't have a job right now I need to get my butt in gear and start looking for one!! But does anyone know about a place that will give u a good deal if you are pregnant? I heard the YMCA was over $200 for a membership! and I want to join with my boyfriend and we dont have that money.

Re: Exercise

You don't need to join a gym to get in shape. What I did was I started by walking around my neighborhood daily. It didn't cost me a thing and I lost a lot of weight in the process. I finally purchased a treadmill a few months ago.. but not before exercising daily outside.. rain or shine. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Re: Exercise

I don't know that the Y gives discounts for being pregnant but you said you weren't working. They do (at least mine does) give discounts according to your income. Just call and ask them
