WTG - Fiddlemom - You are so completely right! They love to talk about how easy it would be to do something, even when you are overweight -BUT they use 20 something, young, fit, even super thin, flexible people..who can curl up in a ball and lock their legs behind their neck and not break a sweat , to demonstrate their exercises.
Show us someone like us...so that we can see that if they can do it, so can we.
And while you are at it, to make it more believable..don't add someone who , even though they they are heavy..do not have other handicaps.
Give us someone who has "severe" arthritis (not just a twinge) all through their body...who are lucky they can "walk" from one room to the next without screaming from the pain..whose lungs will allow them to go the distance...who's hands die to be able to weights in them, of any kind, whose arms are able to be raised above the head or even shoulder height, to do anything....I can go on and on with all the requirements that will be needed !
Give us someone like that...then may we can talk about trying your exercises !
Also, why do weight loss groups...even this one..assume automatically that because you are overweight, you stuff your mouth all the time??? That is really irritating !!!!
I DON'T... I never did and I know there has to be others out there who don't either.
I stopped recording what I eat with your computer thing on here, because I got tired of getting told by it that I DON'T eat enough. They tell you to reduce the amount of food that you eat to loose weight...yet when you naturally don't eat a lot...you don't loose..you actually gain !
