Inspired to lose some weight after my summer holiday as I am feeling a bit more asthmatic and cos I have a bit of a tummy coming on but also inspired by Lynnes Getting Fit for Alberta thead, I am starting a thread!!!

Here is a thread to share hints and tips, share slaps on the back of encouragement, and to share our plans on getting fit!!

So my first plan of action is to spend 15 minutes every lunch time going for a walk.

And eat less choccy biscuits with my cuppas at work. eat a piece of fruit instead - or an oatcake or something!

I hope to lose a stone to a stone and a half (14-21 pounds).

I hope that writing this down here will shame me into doing it!

I joined the fitness center at work and am now doing 30 to 45 minutes of cardio circuit machines, treadmill, elliptical cross trainer and/or recumbent bike about 3 to 4 days a week. 
Also trying to eat better.

I've also started taking some vitamin c and e - with being a veggie I should probably have done this years ago!

I'm going to start on my bellydance routine shortly, targetting lower abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks...

I don't know what to do!!

I have joined a gym 3 times over the years but I always hate going. The only thing I like is the pool. I hate to walk. I won't walk in my neighborhood but there is a safe community close by I could drive to, park and then walk. BUT I HATE IT.

I'm such a lounger.  And I love potato chips (or crisps)

Yeah - its definitely about finding something you enjoy doing.

I enjoy walking and yoga/callanetics so far. hate the gym so have never joined - couldn't think of anything worse! and why waste my money when I know I wouldn't go!?

Wishes - you'll have an active day - workign as a nurse - I just sit at a desk all day - do they not say nurses walk and average of a couple of miles per shift?

Try baked sweet potatoe curls with a little bit of olive oil drizzled over them. It's a healthy alternative to crisps.  I'll see if I can find the recipe for you.

Kelda, yes the gym is not cheap and it's so boring. I really don't want to try it again right now. I am on my feet and on the go all day at work but it's not making me skinny darn it!  Smiley On my days off I want to be lazy and sit at the computer, knit and embroider. I need to do some additional moving though.

Daniel, the recipe sounds yum. I love sweet potatoes. I should have them more. Please post the recipe if you can find it.
