to SparkPeople! I've been told that weight loss is 80% nutrition and 20% fitness - also that jogging helps but we also need strength training to build muscles so our bodies burn more calories. Check out the HEALTHY LIFESTYLE section and look at the articles under FITNESS to get more ideas - good luck on your journey!

Jogging ranks an intensity of 7 on a scale of 1-10, where skipping rope is the max 10 and sleeping rates a 0.9.
So it certainly will burn a hunk of calories in a short time.
I will get into my wedding suit again.

Changing my lifestyle is a challenge
Unless the Lord had given me help I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, 'My foot is slipping' your love O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me your consulation brought joy to my soul (Psalm 94:17-19)
