I need to kickstart my weightloss somehow but I'm 220 pounds and I'm not sure if I can do this. Need as much support as possible.
I did a boot camp once and said never again. The one I went to had everyone doing the same thing. If you are a beginner you need to have different levels for all people in a boot camp. I started back working out at 220 just like you. I have lost 11lbs doing HASfit. HASfit is free and is available on YouTube. You can also burn the workouts to DVD. I just don't think you have to kill yourself in order to lose weight. I started doing one ten min workout a day for five or six days a week. After that, I did two 10 min workouts (20 mins) for five or six days a week. I now workout four or five days a week. I do abs and arms on the same day and cardio on the other days. I also have an old aerobic step that I have started back using. I recently purchased a medicine ball and stability ball. Just get moving, eat right, drink a lot of water and the weight will come off. You can do it!
Psst, I'm frugal so I enjoy doing the YouTube workouts and other inexpensive workout DVDs. My treadmill recently broke down and instead of buying a new treadmill, I started doing workout DVDs. You can also walk around the neighborhood, ride a bike outdoors, yard work, etc.
