Is an Elliptical Right For Me?

I have owned treadmills for many years and after the last malfunctioned in November, decided it was time to look at other options. Of course an elliptical was the natural option to research. A big concern? Whether an elliptical would add extra curves where I did not want them. I am 5'6" and have a goal weight of 120 lbs. I am top curvy and do not want muscle tone to add to my curves. Especially not in the derriere or upper thighs....more

And Down We Go

Weighed in last night and YIPPEE!!!!!  I am down 2.2 pounds.  The scale was in my favor and I have successfully managed my first week on Weight Watchers.  I didn't stay for the meeting which the leader gave me grief for but I've been to umpteen meetings over the years.  I've been to so many meetings that I listened to the same "lessons" over and over again.  Besides a plate of salmon at Lucky's was calling my name.  I hate to do it but won't stay next week as we are having dinner with friends.  At least I'm working hard on the food and exercise. ...more

Congrats! I'm working hard on diet this month, and I was pleased to see the scale move down ...more
