goldy, I think it's totally fine to take breaks when you're first starting out on it. Her advice is great, but it's not the be all and end all. I knew I had to take breaks if I ever wanted to continue doing it and even though I'm only doing it twice a week, I'm already noticing it being a little bit easier. So glad you're joining!

I did it today and I'm having some *ahem* female issues that are quite uncomfortable and was totally prepared to use that an excuse to not do it, but it wasn't bad as I thought it would be. I'm noticing I can get through more of the cardio without wanting to pass out. Progress!

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.
