btw, anyone else notice the impossibility of dieting when ur period is due??
Um...the Kilo is metric.
Um, yeah, I know, I threw that in in case anyone wanted to do a conversion.
HOw's it going everyone ??
Weight control is a great thing. MY father had sever heart diseae at age 50 and a 5 graft bypass operation by 55, so I'm majorly gung-ho on CV risk control.
Anyone want any advice, just ask, it's what I do for a living.

No, I'm a general practitioner, and I give lots of advice about weight loss, diet and exercise as part of that. I control my own weight so I don't wind up a premature death statistic form ischaemic heart disease like my father did.
about the interval training. I take my Ipod everywhere and I have songs I like to dance too. so when they start playing I start dancing. I do it atleast 10 times a day which is at least 40 mins of cardio and Its FUN! If you don't feel like dancing in public, do it at home.
I'm up to the challenge...gotta lose a crapload of tonnage for my Dec trip to Hawai'i...like 60 pounds by Christmas...is that even possible? I gotta start walking everyday at work...and maybe some yogging, too.... Can't post on Sept 1 as I will be whooping it up in Seattle!! Yay...will post when I get back.. Cheers, everyone -- and good luck!

i guess i will do this too. i really need to tone up and i want to lose 5 or 6 pounds.
starting weight: 116 , and i want to be down to 114 by the 8th.
There was a good study recent;ly that showed that short burstes of intense exercise caused much more weight loss than a single proplonged session.
Playing drums is good too. Did you ever see a fat drummer ??
Um, for starters, um no.
Don't be silly.
Unless you are like 2-3 ft tall, then yea, go ahead.
she's like 5'2"....she never listens to me. there is no way she needs to lose weight. thanks for backing me up (Oh I'm her cousin...just to let u know)
I need to lose 30 pounds. I am under a lot of stress at work and eat mindlessly sometimes. My goal is to lose about 2 pounds a week.
HOWEVER, if we're talking cardio, what ultimately matters is the number of total calories you burn, not how intense the exercise is.
I do an hour on the treadmill on the hills setting at a medium pace, (for all the Adam Sandler fans). Anyways, at the end of the hour I've burned anywhere from 1200-1300 calories if I am to believe the treadmill. I do know that I am sweating like a pig when all is done! Haven't tried the HITT yet but may do it along with my hour, but not in place of.
I think an hour is about the longest you wanna go. After that, you run the risk of burning muscle along with fat, not to mention you risk injury/over-training.
