    Exercising with the WII

    i don;t have a Wii but my nephew does, and i have really worked up a sweat....i am seriously thinking of getting one for me......i have also been in the zumba class at my gym and i really love it too!!! i love any exercise that really makes me sweat.

    i have heard that doing exercise at Curves is less intense and i personally like more intense exercise, more on the note of kickboxing and weight lifting....but any form of exercise always helps, so try it, go for it....if you don't like it the first month, then try something new....best of luck.

    Too Uncoordinated To Dance

    i second this, it is a challenge at first, and after some and some more repetitions, you will start getting the hang of it......the important thing is that you are doing your exercise and physical movement that burns calories. best of luck\!!!

    Frustrated - need some cheerleaders

    hang in there, be patient....sometimes we have good and some others are bad days. but the majority are good, and we should be grateful for having had the opportunity to have this surgery. so cheer up, all will be well.....smile and chin up.
