Operation Fatty: Treadmill, Weigh In and a Bunch of Rambling

Join me live tonight at Blog Talk Radio (9:30pmCST) to hear my interview with Michelle Aguilar from Biggest Loser Season 6. She was the winner and was gracious enough to let me ask her a few questions. Topics to discuss for the remainder of the show are healthy eating, the current biggest loser and possibly this operation fatty.
I’ll be posting me ON the treadmill soon but trying to wait as long as possible on that one! For now, you get a brief look at the treadmill and me talking….a lot.

I got my treadmill the other day from Walmart and I have to say, it’s wonderful!  I really enjoy working out on it. I put my TV on Food Network (ironic huh!) and then go!  I keep a water bottle close by so that I can stay hydrated throughout my workout.

The treadmill has the essential features that I wanted which was a fan and the incline.  It runs smooth and folds up for easy storage but I leave my down and right where it is so that I can hop on it daily! It’s a Gold’s Gym and was inexpensive compared to many other treadmills I saw.

The video is basically a whole bunch of rambling sadly.  I went on and on and on. And sorry about the bra strap. GAH!

I’m walking on the treadmill at least once a day, doing a 30 minute workout.  I’m going about 1.51 miles and burning just over 200 calories.  I’m stepping it up tomorrow!

    I think you look great the way you are but I understand the need.
    Good luck with your program and I wish I could stay up and listen to you on the radio but I have an early day tomorrow. Will listen to it afterwards, as usual.

    I too am losing weight. I am now starting my 4th week on WW and have lost almost 10 lbs. YEA!!! I also am going to the gym at least 3 times a week and doing the treadmill for 60 mins. and then lifting weights. My goal is the same as yours although I started at 11 lbs. more. July is my first big goal and then and then hopefully by my birthday in Nov. I will be at my goal weight. I know we can do this …. just like you said “Baby Steps”.

    You can do it! Little steps lead to big results. A year ago, I lost 30 lbs just by watching what I ate and exercising. I have another 20 to go…which I’m working towards right now as we speak.

    Good luck!

    PS – Will you have the radio show podcasted? 10:30 is a bit too late for this southern chick.

    Congrats on the weightloss! If you have a Costco membership, try VitaRain. It’s their version of Vitamin Water but with zero calories. My downfall was fruit juice, and I’ve replaced that with VitaRain. I’ve lost 25 pounds since January.

    Hey girl! Great video. You’re beautiful. I hate being the fat girl too. I’m in the process of taking back my life, regaining health and losing the weight. (see the blog). Good luck! Maybe we’ll finally meet up at one of these events and both be skinnier.
