Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm having a really hard time finding a form of exercise that I can do with extremely limited time and money. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Last summer I was able to walk at least 5 miles a day and I got down to 147 lbs. Now that I'm a single mom, I don't have the opportunity to walk like that anymore and the weight is starting to creep back on and I'm in total panic mode. HELP!!
