I was reluctant to being excersizing due to illnesses- Myasthenia Gravis and Achilles tendonitis- very painful! I've been using my eliptical for 2 weeks. I have discovered I am a happier person since I have been using it. My stress level has dropped and I am not craving many of the comfort foods I "needed" prior to working out. I have been challenging myself to increase the # of miles I go. I started with a level 1 and going 1.5 miles. I have increased to a level 2 and am now going 4 miles in about 34:30 mins. I never thought I'd be able to do this because I am 90 pounds over my suggested weight. I have lost 6 lbs in the 2 weeks I feel like I have made a change that I can live with. I am excited to continue on my path to a new life!

I have a very short attention span so spending any amount of time on one machine drives me crazy! I wear a HRM and every 100 cals I switch to a row machine for 100 cals then back.
