I've lost 124lbs in a year (suffered from adrenal fatigue for two years and gained 100lbs in 6 months) so far (have 6 more to go) for me it was a combo of Michelle Doizios Peak 10 workouts, Cathe's Cardio and Weights and Amy Bento's kickboxing. I have to workout an hour or more a day and I follow WW.

I just wanted to congratulate you on your weight loss success!! I am just restarting my weight loss efforts again after loosing and then regaining 50+ pounds over a very stressful year. Fantastic job!!

I too have to workout no less than 60 minutes daily, most days more. I just got a Bodymedia and saw how little calories I burn if I don't workout quite an eye opening experience.

Consistency is key - I agree.
I found that if I take 3 days off from working out, when I come back the fourth day it feels as if I were starting all over again.
I also find that when I have been consistent, after about 3 or 4 months of workouts that include squats, lunges or legwork the back of my legs start to lose blubber and become tighter. There is definitely something to doing the legwork.
Of course, in the beginning I didn't use weights at all.

Yes, I feel that way, too. Happily, muscle memory kicks in and we get it back fast!

ETA: FYI, this is an revived thread!

This had been back in the day; and my loss had been slow (like the first over 50 pounds ... ). But still, I'd been over 45 years old, if that is an indication. I have to credit using the exercise bike, the Stairmaster and ClimbMax steppers, and elliptical; as well as the use of a lap pool...

As for videos, later on, overwhelmingly it had been something Richard Simmons (although his Dance Your Pants Off had been too hard for me!); and Gaiam had a kind of QuickStart Yoga for Weight Loss at the time ..


Much more recently (for the remaining 30 pounds), I'd taken studio Masala Bhangra classes , could not get to any gym or pool, did any belly dance video I could get my hands on ... Leilainia's Belly Dance Step by Step actually taught me how to belly dance; took a series of classes (at a discount) later ... would recommend any video by SharQui, the Belly Dance Workout ...

Oh, my diet is specialized. But that's a factor too.
