Amber,

I've been doing the Winsor Pilates tapes since the beginning of November. I do them nearly every morning and can definitely tell a difference. My abs and back are much stronger than they used to be and my stomach appears to be flatter. My butt is higher too!

that's an awesome feeling huh? I have only had the pilates tape for about a week and I can already tell a difference in my clothes and I sleep alot better at nite...

I am hoping to get to 176 or so by the end of month...i know that's pushing it, but if I don't set a high goal for myself...i won't even make it half way...

I have been doing pilates for about a month. I have a pilates machine that I bought from qvc. It's nice.

That's really cool...I don't have that kind of money...but I have the beginners tape and it seems to really be working for me...I also ride a stationary bike, and get on the treadmill...

I do a Pilates tape at home too. I love it!! It makes me sleep better at night, too, and it isn't hard on my neck -- which is important since I have had neck pain from a car accident several years ago. I highly recommend it!!

I just did the Pilates for Dummies DVD and it is way cool. I think it will really get my abs toned. They are sore now so I know I worked them good.
