little ones!

with proper form and enough repitition, you will get benefits from 2-3 pound weights. I use two pounders, and they definitely work. Target has some great 2 & 3 lb. ones for like $2.50 each or something.

I'd suggest getting a pair of 3 lb weights and a pair of 5 lb weights. Start out with the 3lb ones, move to the 5 lbs when the 3s get too easy. Then when the 5s get too easy, combine them for 8s!

Start Date: November 1, 2007
Goal Date: May 4th, 2008
Big reward: Looking and feeling great on my Graduation day!

Mini Goal: December 3rd, 2007 : 10 lbs for X Ring!

Fat burns at a lower heart rate then cardio. Moderate and low intensity exercises burn more fat than cardio, but cardio helps if you're not already thin.

I have found a big difference in my body's tolerance to cheating and the shape my body is taking due to weight training. It is hard work but I think the results are so well worth it! I bet you will look amazing in your bridemaid's dress!

in my aerobics class we used 12 oz drink bottles and filled it with sand or dirt. its cheap if u don't want to spend much money but weights at walmart aren't very expensive...since you say you do a lot of cardio..try holding the weights in ur hands while u are walking or running...u can start off with 2 1/2 lbs or whatever is comfortable for you and work ur way up...

A for every 5 pounds lost!
