I'm a big guy, I need to lose 160 more lbs, I'm averaging 10lbs a month, thinking about trying to find a cheap recumbant stationary bike, just to pick up the pace. I have to be careful not to further injure my knee.

I'm in physical therapy for my knees and my therapist has me doing 10 minutes a day on a stationary bike.

I doubt I'll do much more than that, at least at first, but I need to do something to help me keep up with the family. I figure my knee will let me know when to stop, I hope

As the weight comes off, it will also get easier for your knee, you may even find that between strengthening the muscles around it with the bike, and the weight loss that you will be able to do more and more!

I have lost one more pound, and am happy with that. The remaining 93 lbs will hopefully keep coming off one at a time!!!

My goal for Monday is to make an appointment at my workplace gym. It's free and I'm totally embarrassed I haven't taken advantage of it.


I'm 5'3" and 240lb, the heaviest I have ever been. About 6 years ago, I was 236 and then managed to loose 60lbs and kept it off for about 2 1/2 yrs but it has been coming back ever since and now I'm back to where I started from

I have never been "thin", I was 150 almost all through high school and then dropped to 136 the summer after graduation (I was figure skating every day). Everything came back after I got engaged and then married and has been going up ever since - OK, it's all my husbands fault

I didn't lose any weight this past week, but at least did not gain any back. I was relying too much on eating out, and was making poor choices in what I was picking to eat. Tonight I am cooking for myself - ground turkey with curry and lots of veggies, hopefully will help kick me back into gear.

Default 30 lbs.

By new years eve.. it's been 1 week and I am down 2 lbs.

I figue it took me a year to lose the last 23 lbs. So I'm working harder! That will still leave me 35lbs over weight but hopefully that will be my 2012 goal!

Recently trying to lose weight myself. Tried exercising starting last summer but ran into what I thought was a hip problem so I slowed up on the exercising. Finally got to my MD last Friday. Yes I know its terrible to avoid the doctor for almost a year, but other priorities got moved to the front burner, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, turns out I've developing Osteo Arthiritis in my lower spine. The doctor is recommending massive dose of Anti Infla..... and PT. Neither of which fits me. So I did a little research on the right exercise. Turns out I need to add and exercise ball to my routine. Specifically I need to strength the muscles right around the spine to resolve the mild Osteo Arthiritis.

My point is with Winter on the way you may wish to consider buying a 65 CM exercise ball and work on some floor exercises. I have tried these in the past and a little effort burns lots of calories.

It may help you too.
