    ...How long do you take to walk from uni to home? and how many kms are we talking about here..? I've been walking for 3 days now for 1 hour from my school to home but I don't run.. I wonder if it is any use though.

    Walking is the same as running, although the latter burns the calories more. But I am sure that your walking for one hour will definitely get you in shape. However, if you have just been doing that for three days, the effect is still not yet visible. Continue that for several weeks and try to maintain a healthy diet alongside that form of exercise, and most probably, the effects will finally start to reveal themselves.

    It would be, of course, better if you can add more forms of exercise to that one. Why not do from your home going to school? You might get sweaty, yes, but it'll do you a whole lot better.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    well ideally brisk walking for an hour would be equivalent to jogging for 30 minutes... at least that's what I read.

    So I never stopped under an hour when I tried to lose weight the first time. It was the best thing to do since I was new to exercise, I was fat and heavy that time so I couldn't really jog as I had no stamina too.

    effects from walking for an hour a day, plus a no-rice, low-starch (no cakes, white breads, etc), low-sugar (no ice cream, no artificial juices, no sodas) diet showed results in two months. then I relaxed a little bit on the diet and increased my exercise to make up for it, since I also built a little stamina and felt lighter to do more things.

    Well, walker or runner, you'll get most benefit if you aim for thirty to sixty minutes a day. It doesn't have to be all at once — three or four fifteen minute blocks through the day is just as good.

    The impact of running on your joints can be more than three times your body weight, every step is triple the impact of walking. You have to train your body to get used to the jarring. Ultimately for walking or running — find your level, then build up slowly and the benefits will come, both in weight loss and general health.

    And when your body is used to running, after you've slowly increased the strain during your walking/short runs which'll make it easier for you to run for longer distances you will see the real results.

    In terms of weight loss, running wins hands down over walking. In general, you have to walk nearly an hour, to get a similar weight-loss benefit to a half hour run. So continue like you do now, and then increase slowly. It's an exponential increase of calories burned and distance/speed you've moved.
    You're not paid to think;

    so shut up and do your job.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    In my home area in Manila, I cannot do walking nor running as my form of exercise because there are lots of trucks and buses in front of our house unless I want to be hit and smashed my brains to molecules. As a substitute for that exercise, I walk up and down our stairs instead. I do it for 30 minutes every day after I get back to work from school.

    I recommend doing that exercise because you have no costs at all! Plus, you'll definitely sweat a lot due to the gravity you are opposing in just going up the stairs. I'm planning to adding weights on my going up and down the stairs.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    I just can't stand doing that kind of exercise I get bored out of my mind, really. Even treadmills kill me because I can't stand being in one place. >.<

    That's why I like walking (in Makati, steel, and UP/Ateneo campuses in the metro) or jogging or swimming- I get to go places and see people and different scenery.

    That, or Billy blanks

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    I'd kill myself if I start running in our damned street of ours so I guess I have no other choice left than to walk up and down the stairs. But hey, it's still fun! I always listen to music so that I don't become too conscious of the time I'm working.

    Music is definitely a very useful aid in exercising. It lets me become unmindful of the time. You wouldn't realize you'd have exercised 30 minutes already.

    Tae Bo is one of the best forms of exercises but I'm afraid to try it out because I'm afraid I'll be the first one to quit especially in Tae Bo tours in famous department stores. It'll be embarrassing!

    ah but I don't attend a Taebo class. I just do it at home with the videos. It aint too bad, especially because Billy Blanks is a cool guy ^^

    My sisters and I all do his workouts on our own since we live separate lives but we do get competitive during homecomings about keeping our figures

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    that's a draaaastic weight loss by trying to lose 60 lbs in two months! are you following some "biggest loser" program or something?

    My weight loss of 30 lbs happened in two years, gradually. And because of this experience I firmly believe that gradual honest work is the way to go. With gradual loss the skin can recover, at the same time your metabolism adjusts properly so you don't go through withdrawal, or a backlash in weight gain.

    I've tried crash dieting of different methods, and I do lose some weight but after a week or so I gain even more than I lost because of the adverse reaction to the sudden weight loss and drastic change in diet.

    I agree, I can't run for 30 minutes..I don't think 2 rounds around the stadium is 30 minutes so I walk from school to home, today's the 4th day and with music, I'm kindda enjoying it. Music really takes your mind off

    Well, I'll be keeping this up for 2 months first and see what it will bring me

    Oh and I can't walk to school in the morning unfortunately.. It starts at 7.20a.m and if I do, I'll have to start at 6 in order to be on time and to be honest, the traffic here is bad for me to walk that early.

    ..and I'll have body odor.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Hurray for the men and better luck next time for the girls; I've read once in a study that men tend to lose weight faster than women. Here it is:

    http://www.weightwatchers.com/util/a...d=37981&sc=801

    And 60 lbs in just two months? I think that's possible if combined with both diet and daily exercise.

    Let's get it on!

    Crash dieting has never been an effective method to begin with. I believe dieting needs preparation and not just an immediate halt or refrain from eating.

    If possible, a person has to start off with something like 1 and 1/2 cup of rice and a vegetable viand (non-salty and non-sweet, with minimal oil). If he gets accustomed with the new lifestyle, he should try to reduce it a little more until he can finally control his oral urges. Little by little, this can finally be called as proper dieting. Of course, exercise will expedite the process of weight loss because he can burn the calories taken.

    that can easily be observed if you watch Biggest Loser. The women really have a hard time.

    Firstly, the breasts shrink before anything else does >.> That's a sad fact, i'm afraid.

    Here's a shocker though. Shoe size! The 30 lbs weight loss for me caused my shoe size to get smaller! maybe the fats surrounding my feet disappeared??
