Hello Kin’s Green Fighters,
Did you know that a mere 30 minutes of exercise one day per week can reduce the incidence of obesity by 7 per cent? Moving was never a problem for me years ago, as evidenced by the track worn in my carpet between the couch and the fridge.
I lost 175 pounds the first year of my SureSlim program without any exercise at all. I looked much better and I felt better, but I could not walk very far and I certainly could not climb a flight of stairs. Because I had never exercised all the muscles in my body had atrophied. My body was craving to move and I finally decided to listen to my body. Three years later I am in amazing shape! I run up stairs, I walk for miles every day and I am doing things in the gym that I never would have believed possible!
I highly recommend that you incorporate exercise into your new living program. What is the point to lose weight and look good if you cannot move?!
I would like to share a few of my best practices that assisted me to snip the strings of yo-yo dieting. Remember – small healthy changes over time will make a BIG difference!
Here are some tips on Moving Your Body:
- If you are not accustomed to exercising, start off slowly, but do start!
- Muscles are fat-burning machines and you need to put yours to work for you. It is not necessary to lift weights (although I have learned to love this so you may want to give it a try). Most fitness stores have a variety of resistance bands that you can use in the privacy of your home.
- I recommend using a trainer, at least in the beginning, so you learn the correct way to exercise. This will avoid injury.
- An exercise buddy will help keep you motivated and you can encourage each other to keep going.

And don’t forget…. it is NEVER too late to bring your “sexy” back!
