i would like to get in shape but i do not have the motivation to do so. I hope you find something that works for you and then share it with the rest of us unmotivated people.

A pedometer is a great way to see how far you are walking.  I think  the best way is to find someone, not in the same household that you can be exercise buddies.  They can hold you accountable for your workouts.

I need to exercise for my health's sake.  I don't need to lose weight, though.
Have a wonderful day!

I've just started working out recently. I want to build my body up, actually. I'm not fat or skinny, but in between. I want an athletic figure. :)

So I've been watching programs that'll help me out. I usually go beyond it to feel some real 'burn', but it's been working. Check out www.fitclick.com as a great start (and finish) to your work out needs! It's extremely helpful, as it has work out plans, videos, and even tracks your progress and foot plan offers.

I hope that helps!

ZUMBA!  That will have you sweating in less than 20 mins!  But just like everything else in life, it will not work if you don't work it   :thumbsup:

You can either buy the dvd course or the game for the Wii.  Another great game to buy for the Wii is Just Dance - you will have tons of

fun with this one AND shed pounds!  I love my Wii.  In fact, I own 3 of them!  My kids and I play them all the time!  The games bring you together

as a family and get you active, involved with them and each other.  A win-win situation  8)

I recommend picking up a copy of "Primal Blueprint" by Mark Sisson or visiting his blog - Marksdailyapple.

I'm having the same problem too!
It sucks because I've always been skinny and never actually been on a diet until I had my baby girl almost 2 years ago, so I don't know where to start.
Before her, I was walking 2-5 hours a day everyday for my job and no matter what/when/how much I eat I didn't gain (even without exercises). But not anymore :- I stll have 6 month pregnant tummy and I tried to do sit-ups but didn't last. With my little girl I can't exercise outside of my house so what can I do? I was wondering if wii fitness thing helps. It looks like much more fun than just do sit-ups and stuff. Has anyone ever tried it before?

I bought core rhythms (latin dance workout kinda thing. I chose this because it's very popular in Japan too.) dvds and started about a week ago. I haven't lost even a pound yet but every time I dance I feel my stomach gets tight and I sweat too. So it's definitely using my muscles and burning some calories. Hopefully I will be able to wear swimsuit this summer ::)

I have trouble sticking to a work out schedule also. But I enjoy Yoga at night becus it helps me relax. Yoga is probably the only thing I have been able to stick with.
