I've been working on strengthening my core more than anything else, because I've never had a strong one and my shoulders hurt after just walking. Though I've lost no pounds, I've lost a good amount in inches. I think 6 around the waist, in particular.
It keeps me motivated. Even if I stay at 180 lbs forever, it'll be a trim, strong 180! LOL!
