I've ordered myself a decent treadmill for my birthday next week but it's not arriving until October as I have so much on. I am terrible at making time to exercise and I live in the mountains so even a walk can be like mountaineering. So I am going to have it in the kitchen to start off with so every time I go looking for food I can get on the treadmill and walk instead!

Awesome idea!! We didn't get our walk in this moring b/c of rain. Sure I could have gotten on the treadmill but noooo - I stayed in bed instead!!! I'll have to get a walk/run in tonight!! I have been struggling all summer - lose 2, gain 2, lose 2, gain 2....getting frustrating!!! But I'll keep at it!!! Good luck!!
Magpie, Billy - I hope you were able to make your goals!!! It's a lot of work!

My main problem with loosing weight is that I'm doing it so I'm fitter and have less chance of getting diabetes etc but I am a happy soul and happy in my skin even with my extra cake layers. So even though I know I need too I'm not really feeling drive for it.

I know how you feel,Kizzy. Sometimes life just gets in the way and I'm happy enough to get through the week let alone try to lose weight as well. It's not until I get into a change room to buy some new clothes that I feel terrible. I have lost a bit of weight but I have lost some momentum at the moment.

Those are the Times I feel rubbish too. We finally got the treadmill delivered today, it's great but big clumpy and heavy we are having to rearrange the kitchen to get it in but that's ok. Bad bit is that I have a trapped nerve which I've just exacerbated so having to sit out the rest of the kitchen rejig. I 've had a little go on it though it has a weight loss program so I think that'll be me. My first goal. No scales or tape measures for me yet. I want to concentrate on getting the exercise habits right. The first week I want to do 3 30 min sessions.

Good luck Kizzy. Now it is warmer and lighter here in the mornings my husband and I have been walking together. It's a good motivater...if I don't really feel like it he shames me in to it and then I can do the same to him! I hope your nerve problem gets better soon.
