Talking finally....

Got an elliptical!! Super excited! That is all I used to use at the gym and I finally have one I can use whenever I want! I hate running because it hurts my knees so much, but so excited that these machines take that pounding off of them! I'm at work now but can't wait to get home and give it a go! Our friend who had it before me said that using the routines programmed into they dropped 30 pounds just starting! Hoping I can stick to using it twice a day and see the same results! Anyone else had such great results using ellipticals?

Wish me luck! :]

I love my elliptical (though we did something wrong setting it up and so the computer doesn't register the motion, so I don't know my speed/calories/etc.). It's a good way to do my cardio at home. Mine also has a exercise bike as part of it, which lets me change things up or sit down when I need a rest, lol.

No matter what it does for the scale, I'm sure you'll soon be feeling stronger and healthier for using it. Have fun!
