Re: exercise

An elliptical trainer is a good plan. There's just one thing you have to watch out for: Sometimes, when people start exercising, they eat more, so watch your diet too.

You don't have to cut down to 1,000 calories a day or anything, just limit the junk food, fried stuff, meat, cheese and dessert.

Re: exercise

I really like the elliptical! Its a lot easier on the joints than some of the other machines. You may want to look into doing some sort of strength training. Lean muscle burns more calories. I would invest in either some hand weights or resistance bands. Both have programs that can be done at home. I have lost 40 pounds so far and really saw my weight loss take off when I added in the strength training. I also made sure to eat right and enough of the right stuff. I would look at your BMR so you can target how many calories to take in with exercise. Sorry to ramble, this has become a passion of mine .

Re: exercise

Good advice Jane! I have been using an elliptical trainer at home for some time, and it really helps you lose weight. I have tried other machines but the elliptical trainer is my favorite by far. Good luck!

Re: exercise

As what Jane said, try to watch your diet as well. A good exercise should always be paired with the proper food.
