    I am so unfit I get puffed just watching sports on TV.

    I wont even check the letterbox unless I am going out there anyway. And, if the remote is not within reach, I will just watch whatever is on LMAO

    The Hacker's Diet

    You might consider the above system.

    It starts really really gently. With stuff you can do in a bedroom of a motel if you have no other place available. Trying to run 20 minutes with no build up or prior effort is just asking for the kind of pain that makes you want to quit.

    I do a lot of walking - with the dog and I've found it makes a huge difference to my overall fitness - ie how much extra running I can do in a hockey game.

    You wouldn't want to jog straight away if anything... Slowly building up the time and pace weekly with consideration of current health and age will make it more enjoyable because you don't feel like it's not achievable. Of course, you wouldn't want to exercise like that of Biggest Loser. That's just absolutely unhealthy to completely exhaust the body without time for adjustment or consideration of age. Pushing the body too hard sounds like you're doing a lot, but could also risk a sudden heart problem or unease in the body.

    After 4 years of athletic rest... I decided to do a 400m sprint as fast as I could. I vomitted as a result of my body unable to cope with the sudden need of energy.

    I also purchased a Wii Fit. I used it twice and forgot about it... Now it's somewhere in the lounge. Somewhere...

    EDIT: Don't forget to use the Talk test when jogging! It's a great way of knowing whether you're pushing yourself too hard or not doing enough. You should be able to talk to someone while exercising without feeling like you need to breath a lot after every second word, but not talk like you're having a conversation at the cafe with friends.

    Vomiting after initial exercise is a good thing I have been told.

    My friend used to cycle and they would do like 6 months on and 6 months off.

    When they all went to the first training session he told me they would all vomit at some stage during the session and it was the bodys way of trying to release the toxins it had built up in the off period.

    I dont know if its correct, I steer well away from anything healthy and as we speak am having a glass of coke and my third chocolate bar of the day LOL

    My uncle was a body builder, every day he used to lift until he vomited, then get back up for one more.
    I don't know how he could do it.

    If you want to start jogging you should try the Couch to 5km program. It builds you up slowly. At the start you will walk more than you will run. If you're not usually a runner going from nothing to 20mins is HUGE and you could hurt yourself so be careful! http://www.c25k.com/

    This program got me running 5km a day, then I gradually built up more and more distance by myself. Lost heaps of weight and toned up doing it too, but then I moved to AMerica for a year and stopped so have lost ALL my fitness, that's why I'm going to do the next round of Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. It's gotten some AMAZING reviews!

    My jeans are loose - does that count as weight loss?

    The trouble with focussing on weight alone is muscle weighs more than fat - so pant size decrease is probably a better guide to progress.

    I hate cross trainers too. It's a lovely day for a walk. Or gardening.
