I'd be ok but i had already put on about a stone and a bit since giving up the fags a couple of years ago so now i've got one of those 'muffin tops'.

Gonna have to seriously reconsider my lifestyle over the next couple of weeks to get some exercise in,dont want to give up the beer yet till the footies finished so got another couple of weeks of that.

So what exercise is best to tone me up a bit ?

There are many forms of exercise which might suit you.

'Bedroom olympics' can burn calories , but other more formal exercise would depend on what your level of fitness is. You don't want to injure yourself trying to get fit. Power walking is a good way to re-start a fitness campaign.Stick some good motivating music on your MP3 player and go. Think of the performance of the England team in the world cup and your rage will carry you further, quicker and increase your heartrate . As your walking gets faster you could intersperse it with intervals of jogging, to rev up your heartrate.

Also, some form of resistance exercise, using either weights or you own body (press ups, tricep dips etc) might be useful to build muscle, which can apparently burn fat more efficiently.

If Mrs Lioned has any workout dvds, have a look at those, they are not always girly and off-putting and sometimes have some good exercise. Additionally, it can make you feel happier to watch fit people in skimpy exercise clothes, so it's a bit of a win-win.

Just a few ideas to get you thinking.

Just an update. I've managed to lose 2 stone now, still can't quite believe it. I was overweight by 5 stone for twenty years or so. Now I am only 3 stone overweight! NObody has come up to me and said I look like I've lost anything but I FEEL better. I can walk (power walk) further and don't get so tired. Also clothes fit better!

I did it with the Mayo Clinic Diet but also I decided to be totally veggie so not sure which one is the most responsable. I think the Mayo diet is very similar to the Weight Watchers one, you have to keep a journal, I kept mine for 12 weeks. Now I Automatically choose the right things to eat, but there is more to it like Not forgetting to have healthy snacks and not missing meals. Also portion control is important and their 'pyramid' which is very like the Mediteranian diet really. It soon stops being a diet and becomes a way of life. Oh and my chocolate addiction (that's what is was, I think) has really stopped! I would recommend it but I think you have to have the book AND the journal before you start. Mine came from Amazon. Keep you posted :-)

Has anyone heard about the Tony Ferguson diet its from Australia I think, but it seems to be well advertised by Boots, so it must be ok for them to be pushing it.

Jeannie, I know just what you mean by tums!!! Very disheartening but keep plodding. In my case I seem to be losing it from my lower legs, not what I wanted at all! Always had skinny legs, it's all on top if you know what I mean! Anyway, well done all of us slimmers, we will get there in the end :-)

I once went on a big diet and lost 3 stone. I went from a 20 trouser/skirt to a 14, a shoe size 8 to 7 and ring size Q to L.

My boobs went from 44C to 40G!!! They stayed exactly the same bloomin' size!!! In fact, the cup size went up because the differential between my rib cage and the widest point got bigger.

I've since put some weight back on, which I am going to start taking off again; I am now a 22/24 on top and a 16 on the bottom!

Well i went on a 14 mile bike ride around Bewl waters last weekend and am now off to do the Jurasic coast.Bikes are on the roof rack and ready to go in the morning.
Sadly all this exersize,though invigorating,has made me hungry and thirsty and i have now developed manboobs ! So i fear that i must abstain from the chocolate and crisps and cut down on the booze.
I have managed to put on 1/2 a stone in the last month and am starting to feel fat,which is a totally new experience for me as historically i have always been slim and a little under weight.
Think i need a plan !

I am still on my diet, lost two stone so far but stuck for a while. Next week I am going to try this. . .

PCRM 21-Day Vegan Kickstart! http://21daykickstart.org/index_new.cfm

Found it on Twitter. PCRM stands for Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine apparently.
I am MOSTLY vegetarian but I think 3 weeks of totally vegan can only be a good thing. Don't have to stick
to it after that. I thought I must give it a try! Will let you know how it goes!

Jeanie, I've been doing a particular Callanetics exercise for years that tightens that underarm area. It works really fast and is quite quick to do. I do it while I'm waiting for the kettle to boil! Beware, though, it really gets to work on those muscles and you will really feel it!

On this video from 3.04

Your arms will firm up a lot if you use that exercise regularly.

Thanks anna, I have bookmarked that excerpt for future use. Lately I've been avoiding sleeveless tops and sleeveless dresses like the plague - so I'll definitely give it a go!

I'm well impressed if you're able to hang with Callen Pinckney

I had her video 20 + years ago, and I found it difficult even back then.

I would like to find a really good exercise DVD. I have got Yogalates with the rubber band, and though it is very effective, it is also very boring.

I got into Callanetics around the mid-nineties, but only kept up a few of the exercises, which I still do. I like yoga and now that I've got a mat, I'm going to join a class. I tried some of the Callanetics leg exercises again recently, but I could hardly walk for about three days afterward!

Ouch! Do let us know how your yoga classes go Anna. Yoga is so good for you, but I find it lengthy and slow, and you have to go through each move without skipping any - which I find very laborious. I wish I had the tenacity to take on yoga.... goodness knows I could definitely use the stretches and the limbering up benefits.

I am still searching for something to inspire me, that I find challenging and interesting. I was one of the first people to get into the Jane Fonda craze, way back in the day! I kept it up for many years too.

I get bored very easily with exercise which is the reason I stopped going to a gym. The yoga class I have found is a pay-as-you-go, which suits me much better than paying for a whole term and I managed to get the mat from someone on Freecycle. So, knowing that I'll get back from work on some yoga evenings feeling tired and I know I won't go, this class will suit me.

Seriously though - very good luck with your classes Anna. Keep us posted on your progress
