New Torture Device

I just couldn't take using my "torture device" (aka glider) anymore. I know I need to exercise, but just couldn't make myself use it. So this weekend I bought a new "torture device". Actually it's an exercise bike and I know I will use it more. I actually got on it for 30 minutes last night and got out of bed 15 minutes earlier this morning so I could ride it before work. I know I will use it because I like to read and I can actually read while I'm pedalling. That's how I survived 30 minutes last night. I have really got to do something. I got on the scale this morning and I gained 5 pounds over the weekend. I actually think it's one of my meds that's causing the weight gain. I am going to call the doctor's office tomorrow and hopefully I will be able to talk to someone about it. We have a hurricane heading this way, so I'm not sure if anyone will be in the office or if the office will be busy because people are trying to get treatment and meds before the hurricane hits. Wish me luck. And wish me luck with my exercise because no matter what caused my weight gain....I am determined to take it off. If it ever quits raining in the afternoons (not that I'm complaining because we still need alot of rain).....I will start walking again.

I think the exercise bike is a great idea ... something you could do while watching tv and it makes the time go by faster.

Good luck with your new exercise regime.

Sounds like you have a great start on the weight loss! I'm down 7 lbs now...and can feel the difference already! Why is it when we first start to diet we always seem to get "sick"?? Soon as I started this my back went out...go figure!
