I've been thinking about it for awhile. I had a gym membership years ago and it was fun but when I'm not in the mood to work out, I can think of every reason to not get in my car and go.
I lost my biggest amount January 2003 (that was 3 years ago!) and it was when I was walking everyday (JacobsMommy do you remember that? It was so long ago!). I lost 15 pounds in one month!
With school, it's easy to pick relaxing, the cute boyfriend and being at home over staying late at the school gym. I think a treadmill gives me the freedom to squeeze in an hour on the treadmill because it really *is* an hour and not much more since there is no travel time, no gearing up (ummm, read that as finding clean workout clothes in case I run into someone I know), no frivlous stuff. I can jump on, jump off, hit the showers, whatever.
Well, it comes in 3 weeks. Anyone who knows about Southern California houses knows there is no "extra" room. So, we've converted a small space in the office. I literally can't be on my computer and on my treadmill because they occupy the same space! As an added bonus, the cute boyfriend is buying a small tv and having our satellite service added to the office so I can watch tv at the same time (bonus!).
If anyone is interested in the treadmill I bought, it's the Ironman Inspire Folding Treadmill. It was between this and the Epic at Costco but this came with delivery and it's 268 pounds up my stairs that I'd gladly pay more for someone else to do.

If anyone else has a treadmill or some advice, please let me know!
