Wooo! You won't regret it! And it's not easy to "forget" to lift when you keep tripping over the damn things! :lol:

Me too!

I just got a late Christmas present of a set of dumbbells that go up to 20 pounds. :D

Does anyone have any advice for setting up a program? How many reps, how much weight, which exercises?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

cheers! :hat:

www.stumptuous.com Krista is fabulous.

I also read a lot of what the LWL have to say, buy magazines for tips, bought the body building bible for women, and read alot on the internet.

I had to come back and correct a mistake. The book I bought is called the Body Sculpting Bible for Women by James Villepigue & Hugo Rivera. Sorry for the misquote.

I knew whatcha meant. ;)

Thanks, Susan! I'm checking out Krista as well as Body For Life and the Body Sculpting Bible and very much looking forward to getting started tonight.

I'll check in with my progress soon - provided I can still lift my arms enough to type :D
