Walk Away The Pounds Anyone?

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

I've seen that a lot lately, I was just wondering how you guys are liking that. I was thinking about trying those. I recently bought 2 "Prevention" dvds, they were dancing ones... I've only done 1, and I really enjoy it... but the walk away the pounds has sparked my interest. I am looking into getting the set with the 1, 2 and 3 mile walk. I think it would be fun to see the progress and that would keep me motivated to continue to do it:) I also wondered how many pounds the weights they use are? I have several sizes, and I even have ones that wrap around my wrists, so I'm hoping I can stick with those.

I exercised nearly everyday for two weeks, and then just stopped. I don't know why I do what I do... I was losing, I felt better... I kept getting better at my exercise dvd, and for no apparent reason I just stopped. I am not going to give up this battle, I want to lose this weight more then just about anything in this world, so I know I can do this:)

    I've never done the WATP videos, but I have never heard anything bad about them. Anyone I know who's done them are always raving about it. I have workout tapes for the days I can't leave due to weather, but I prefer to go to the gym. I like to be out of my house, and in a different environment when I'm working out. My house is where all bad habits started. I used to have a REALLY basic Tae Bo video tape (yes a tape) years ago. It was in high school and I dropped about 30 pounds on it. Then got sick... And stopped. It was a lot of fun though. I hope you enjoy the WATP videos! Keep with it girl, you can do it :)

    I used to be able to "dance" but now I'm throwing all this weight around it is like I have no coordination. lol. That's why I stuck to walking! haha

    Thanks so much!:) I went ahead and ordered them, I saw a clip of it on you tube, and it does look fun. And like you said, they aren't these really complicated and tricky moves:) I am coordinated when it comes to that stuff, but between the arthritis in my knee, and my size, I can't always do all those crazy moves ha ha. Maybe when I'm skinny;)

    I have used Walk Away The Pounds. I recommend it to people who aren't able to do those super tricky dance workouts. I actually LOVE WATP but... I used them so much I had them memorized. In one video I had she used 2 pound weights. I wouldn't get them much heavier because 2 pounds gets REALLLY heavy after a while! lol

    Anyway, Before you know it you've walked 3 miles. They're fun!
