I need to excerise but haven't found the time in my schedule to even have 10 minutes to myself let alone 30 minutes to excerise.

I've been able to lose 10 lbs in the last 8-10 weeks by drinking mostly water, cutting out sugar and eating more fruits & veggies.

I want to lose another 20 lbs and I know it wont happen without burning more calories.

DeBora, get yourself a pedometer and weigh your books, and demonstrate to your doctor just how much you walk and carry each day!

When I was in grad school it was a 1/2 mile walk to the CLOSEST campus building to my apartment. Most buildings I had to go to were a longer walk than that. I got an amazing amount of exercise--always walking somewhere.

Now, of course, is a different story. My doctor does not believe that running around with a 3-year-old and hauling laundry up and down the stairs counts as exercise either, LOL!

I totally agree Barb! I have told him approximately how many miles per day that I walk and how many books I carry. He said it didn't count because I was thinking about my next class and not giving my brain a break. I understand where he is coming from since I have learned about the nervous system. However, I am so dogged tired by the time I get home. So, I listen to music between classes. This coming semester all my classes will be in one building except one. They are all psych classes so I don't know why one isn't in the building with all the other psych classes.

Anyway, I used to tell DH that I didn't exercise because I was allergic to it! (This was before college) THen, he was listening to the news and they said, "Coming up next, people who are allergic to exercise!" I could NOT resist! I laughed and laughed! Come to find out, it was about people who start exercising and it gets their ammune system working and initially triggers their allergies. But, I used it to say, "I told you so!"

Truthfully, exercise is good for you and I have nothing against it. I just don't have time to do what I should.

I'm not very loyal with it, but I do try to ride my exercise bike occasionally. When I'm doing good, I'll ride a mile in the morning & a mile at night. That, along with drinking lots of water, does help me lose weight & inches.

I have the's the motivation I lack. I need to drop 15-20 pounds in order to be more healthy & feel better about myself.
