I asked about doing ss more than once a day on another board and someone said that she didn't say you had to but I don't see any reason no to. I do bodyflex and shapely secrets with the abdonda breathing and it just gives me energy. I have to disagree with some of the posters. The first time I did shapely secrets with the abdonda breathing I was whipped. I did the total body workout, upper body and lower body. I'm getting more used to it now, thankfully. I also use an eliptical when I can find the time. But I like the bf and ss because they are so simple and you can use them throughout the day.

What is the best results anyone achieved and did they do it several times a day with dieting or without

I have read all the posts here and I think I am convinced to order SS. Everyone, for the most part seems to be getting wonderful results from it. I am so glad I found this forum. When I say the infomercial, I just thought it was too good to be true. I am ordering today, so I will keep in touch after I receive mine (hopefully with no shipping problems), and let everyone know how I am doing. :carrot:

Okay to those who got results without dieting.

I've been told all my life that you can't spot reduce.

Aerobic exercise gets rid of fat everything else builds muscle.

How can this (which builds muscle) decrease your inches without dieting?

How is it possible to lose inches just by doing this non-aerobic, non calorie burning routine?

Fat can't turn to muscle sooo...I'm a confused girl. :dizzy:

I am new here and just started. I just ordered shapely secrets because I wanted to try it. I don't have as much motivation to do longer workouts anymore or the time. I will post my results after I receive the DVDs.

Cherryblossom, If you get Greer's book, Be a Loser, she explains it really well. You can get it on Amazon for a penny plus $3.99 for shipping. That book is about Bodyflex but Shapely Secrets with Abonda breathing is similar and she marketed both programs.

CherryBlossom 10-19-2007 05:59 PM

Is there anywhere she explains this for free? :rofl:

No offense to those who like her, I could be totally off base. But I understand how cardio works, and how strength training works. If this lady wants me to try this stuff out I'd like her to explain up front how it works.

I know deep breathing and contractions...but how does that equal inches lost?

carolr: I am still awaiting my SS to arrive in the mail. How much success have you had with it and are you still doing the program. Just curious:)

Barbara, is SS what you have used to lose weight? Congratulations on your weight loss... you are an inspiration!!

i haven't ordered ss or bf yet, but i have hoshimoto (autoimmune thyroid disease) and cannot exercise past 10 mins per dr orders due to joint aches and exhaustion. i would like to try the exercises with as little $$ investment as poss - do you think this book explains it well enough to try? the past year of being very sick has really weakened my muscles and increased my "flab" and this looks promising for me.

This is how you can lose inches by just doing strength training.

Muscles burn a lot of calories. If you build your muscles and are not eating any more calories than you consumed before you will lose weight because you're now burning more calories. Stronger, bigger muscles equals more calories burned.


There's even a book called the no-calorie diet that ONLY believes in strength training, though the writer DOES suggest a very low calorie diet in conjunction.

carolr3639 10-25-2007 09:41 AM

LoveGodlovepeople, Yes, the book explains very well how it can work for just about anybody. I have sarcoidosis, a lung disease with other complications, and doing this has always made me feel better. You used to be able to get bodyflex on HSN really cheap because they were coming out with Shapely Secrets but I haven't checked there lately. That would be a DVD or VHS that you would get from HSN (home shopping network) and it is very easy to follow.

Something is wrong with this thread. A lot of posts are missing on page 10. Why?

carolr3639 10-25-2007 02:08 PM

Ok, When I post the page shows up but when I go off of page 10 and come back, only 2 posts show. So now I'll be able to see it as long as I don't go somewhere else. Strange.

I recieved my SS in the mail on the day I was leaving for a road trip with my mother. I tried it out right after we came home that night, but I was so tired I am not sure if I did it correctly so I did it again a few hours later after a nap and before I went to work. The back of my arms hurt a good bit. I am a waitress so my walking around for about 5 hours, my legs probably wouldn't hurt too much. Usually with any new workout I get a delayed reaction with the pain. It takes about two days or so, when I ma not busy doing other things.

I'll post my progress at the end of the first week.
