HI!


I'm got a lot to lose, being 287lbs. I can't believe I got that high with my weight. I used to be really fit in my 20's. I was the Aerobics Queen back then! When I hit 30, I had a baby and packed on the weight. I'm 42 now.

Hey, Cherry!


From one "big girl" to another, way to go! You should be very proud of yourself for getting back into the fitness scene. I

That sounds great--starting small is the best way to get used to working out and too many people burn out too quickly. The elliptical is a great workout and gentle on the knees.

Welcome both Lori and Cherry. Some of us are a little crazy and some of us are a little less. :)

Do I get to be a little crazy?

You seem to me to be, speaking cyber-wise, one of the most even tempered people I've "met". Maybe you're not that way in real life but that's the impression I have of you from your posts. :)

I only went once, but it was pretty cool. I did my 'flair' (pull down both toggles hard--acts like an airbreak)

I know someone else who did that, too, and messed up his knees.
