Actually, when I told my internist, pancreatic doc, about my running and then being told to stop by my PAC back in May, he was like, no! running is good!
I said, yes, but it's hard on your body and then I told him about my hips. Thankfully, no ankle or knee issues. Funny thing is my hips hurt less when I run
I was jogging on the TC and doing the C25K, but then had to stop altogether after getting sick...booo
So, I just do what I can. Yeah, I'd like to lose some more weight, as well. Nothing like getting pancreatitis to help you start! lol Congrats to you on the weight loss and keeping/staying on course! So worth it
btw...during my exercise today, my hips didn't hurt as much/often...woohoo...looks like my body is acclimating rather quickly!

Vina-are you still doing insanity? I'm interested in it, but would like to hear more about it.
I started the BeachBody, Slim in 6 series yesterday afternoon. I like the workout, but found it to be too easy, really. I like the concept and will stick with it, but I will be supplementing it with JM's 30-Day Shred, which I started this morning. That workout is more intense.

Some background: I have been a runner/jogger in the past, but due to IT band issues that began affecting my knees, I haven't run since August of last year. I also do light weightlifting 3x per week. I'm 49 and consider myself to be in decent shape for my age. But without being able to run, over the holidays the weight started piling on - 15 pounds of it!!! I love to cook and I love to eat and that is not a good combination for losing or maintaining my weight. I'm determined to blast that 15 pounds off and an additional 5 pounds to get me to where I feel the most comfortable.

So, my plan is to do the JM workouts in the morning, and the BB workout in the afternoon. I will supplement with a daily Pilates reformer routine. I find that to be a relaxing way to gently stretch my muscles in the evening without breaking a sweat. I have been tracking my diet/calories on WebMD. I will weigh in every week, most likely on Friday mornings. To keep myself accountable, and as embarrassing as it is for me to admit, my starting weight as of this morning is 140 lbs. I'm 5' 3.5" tall and I feel most comfortable around 120 lbs., so that's my goal. Wish me luck!!!

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I've done P90X and I started Insanity today. You may want to take a look at a Jillian Michaels website. There are a few videos that you may like.
