Are you struggling to lose weight like me? I used to cheat when it comes to dieting and have tried taking diet pills instead of exercise. I would lose a few pounds in the beginning but everything comes right back once I stop taking them. I think exercise and good choice of foods is still the best so I'm thinking of buying an elliptical. I know that walking is good for the heart but I can't bear the heat outside so an elliptical machine would be perfect. I'll give you an update on my diet once I start with the machine.
