How many of us are out here?


What tapes do you use?
Which series?

Let's keep eachother motivated...


Today I did the two mile walk in the morning, and am going to do the 1 mile in a few :) I do the one mile with weights on my ankles to get more out of it :)


Anyone else?

I just bought the DVD with the 1 mile & the 2 mile walks on it. I've only used it twice so far because I just got it Friday & it's been so nice that DH & I have been going for walks outdoors! Spring fever is a great motivator! :sunny:

I used my own hand weights with the 1 mile, but I did the 2 mile for my first time without weights just to get used to it. I'm sure I will add weights as I do it more.

I like the idea of a support group to help keep motivated. Right now it's new to me, so it's still holding my interest but I'm afraid I'll get bored after a while.

I have a set of the WATP with weights and a set of WATP with the "ab" belt. I have been alternating between them (one day with weights, one day with the belt). I have been doing the 2 mile but I will do the 3 mile today because lets just say being home with a sick child I did NOT stick with my plan AT ALL today.

Me too! I never thought I could get into those tapes, because I like dancy type aerobics, but they are really great tapes!

I have the WATP for abs with the ab belt. It is nice. Eventually I would like to get some more of her tapes.

Which ones are your favorites?

I have been altering between the 1 and 2 mile tape. I will work up to the 3 mile.

keep up the great walking!

Ok I have the Walk aerobics deluxe DVD. So since it is buy Leslie Sansone and is the same basic priciple as WATP Can I join to? I have done 1 mile of the 3 mile walk and 3 miles of the 4 mile walk aerobics part. I think I really like it!! It is the only DVD I could find at Sam's Club. It does not have any hand weights or anything but they could easily be incorpurated so I may try it after I get a little more used to them.

I have been looking for the three mile walk and can not find it anywhere :( I have gone to K-Mart, Walmart, Target, Circut City, Best Buy and Comp USA and nothing :( I do the one mile with 2.5 pound weights n each leg, and then do the 2 mile one with the hand weights.

Today I did the two mile in the morning and the 1 mile in the evening.


I really enjoy them, because just as I am pooping out, she goes back to the walk for a few :)

Me Me MEEEEE! I do them. I bought the series 1, 2, and 3 mile vhs tapes a couple weeks ago along with the firm scuplt series. So I did the 2 mile when i got home from work then me and dh did a 1 mile tonight. I rotate the 1mile with a ab workout from the firm. Some days just the 2 mile i have'nt gotten up to the three mile yet the 2 mile kicks my butt right now. I have the belt with the series i have and it gives me a good workout for the time being.

I am assuming that you use these DVD/VHS tapes while on a treadmill? I have no room in my house for any equipment, DH claims we can fit a excercise bike in the BR, not likely. The program sounds wonderful tho, keep up all the good work. I get to walk stairs at work, I park on the 3rd level of the garage, and walk up the 36 steps to the office. Not much, but better than the elevator, right?

believe
03-18-2003, 06:25 AM
mickeyfan1...you don't need much room for these videos, atleast the ones I have you don't. I have used them for over a year, currently I am firming so I don't use them as often now. If you can take 4 good size steps forward and 2 good size steps sideways then you have plenty of room.

For those who want to firm she has an older firming video that is wonderful also, I didn't care for the more recent 20 minute one...you definitely feel the 45 minute firming workout even without using weights. I found a copy at our library.

03-18-2003, 07:03 AM
mickeyfan1 -- no equipment needed. Except your TV and VCR or DVD player -- and a little room to move!

Glo -- did you check at Amazon? That's where I bought my 2 mile tape.

Can I join too? I have the tape -- but haven't actually used it yet!:rolleyes: Hey - give me a break! I've been walking on my treadmill which is a VERY big accomplishment for me right now!

ww I was doing like you and walking on the mill. It was very boring even with the t.v or radio on these tapes are fun and easy to do and you "feel" them and you can choose how much time you have 15, 30 or 45 minutes. It's a blast and i use these and rotate them with my firm tape which the ab one is 20 minutes so it works great and i am doing it 4-5 times a week where it was all i could do to "force" myself on the mill 3-4 times a week and i feel i'm getting much much better results from this variety than the mill only. Join us in walking i just finished my mile this morning only had a few minutes to spare as the girls were up and i had to wash my hair this morning. This evening i'll do another tape and then with dh tonight do atleast the 1 mile tape again. I got in 3 miles yesterday I would have never done that on the mill.

Have the one, two, and three mile tapes and a toning tape. Did well one week, and then last week, DD and DH were home and it just didn't happen. I need motivation!!! So count me in.:D

Leslie will be on QVC later this month so maybe she'll have a new tape on at that time. iQVC.com has some of her walking tapes in stock.

I just picked up the 2 mile one this past weekend. I was getting bored on the treadmill too, and I was afraid the boredom would keep me from exercising. I did the 2 mile walk on Sunday and Monday, and I am doing the treadmill tonite.

I love the tape! I think it is fun and I think she is easy to listen to. I have a bad back and so this tape is ideal for me.

I try and do the 2mile at least 4-5 days a week. The rest of the week I alternate with tai chi and calisthenics.

Although I've been having a lot of neck and back issues lately, so I haven't been able to do much

You all made these tapes sound so good, I went out and bought them this weekend. I found a set of all three on 2 DVD's. So far, I've done the 1 mile tape twice. I really enjoyed it. I haven't bought the weights yet though. Thanks for letting us know about them.:)

I am going to try to watch her on QVC nd see what she says. I don't use the weighted balls, but bought 3 llb. weights at Walmart for $2 each. I do alternete the workouts depending on how much I walk at work on my lunch hour. I woke up early today and did the 2 mile with 2.5 pound weights on each ankle and used 3 lbs weights instead of the 2 lb balls.


I try to do them atleast 5-6 times a week.....anyone walk today?

03-26-2003, 08:14 AM
I walked last night the 2 mile tape around 10 pm does that count.LOL I plan on doing the 2 mile again today, but i have not graduated to the weights yet I'm still quite big though so it's a challenge just to get thru the workouts still for me. Anyone else walking there pounds away with me and GLo?

03-26-2003, 03:28 PM
Haven't yet...I did the 3 mile with the ab belt last night, and will do the 3 mile with wieghts tonight. I have been alternating belt and weights. After the first 3 mile with the wieghts boy was a sore so the last could nights I have had to take it easy with the wieghts and belt. But I am not letting it stop me. 4 pounds and 4 wiegh ins to go before my first goal of 10 pounds by Easter, so walk, walk, walk I go.

Anyone looking for tapes they can't find, try here (http://www.lesliesansone.com/videostore.jsp) It is Leslie's website ( http://www.lesliesansone.com ) she has a bunch of tapes there, including the 4 mile tape.

glo
03-28-2003, 04:48 AM
man woke up late today will have to do the 3 mile tonight. Anyone add to the tapes? I have been doing the two mile tape with 2.5 pound weights on each foot. Have not figured out how to put that on fitday yet, but must be added caloriy burn right?

See you guys later :) Have a great day...and keep on walking:)

disneychrista
03-28-2003, 11:56 AM
I am thinking of getting ankle wieghts. Once I can get through the 3mile "easily" I will probably add that.

And yes, any added wieght you add burns more calories and helps to tone and strengthen muscles.

glo
03-28-2003, 12:07 PM
I skipped the WATP this morning. Did weights and crunches for 45 minutes instead. I may do the two mile when I get home tonight. I love the tapes because I am not tripping over myself all the time. Also, I can do the ankle weights and I felt some sucess quickly. I did fall asleep last night and missed her on QVC...I did want to hear what she said and if she had anything new...oh well

Fatboy
03-28-2003, 02:06 PM
I have been doing the tapes (1 & 2only) for awhile. I love the flexibility of fitting them in even if you only have 20 min. to spare!

I have also been TRYING to get to CURVES at least 3 x a week. Not much luch at that lately. To busy getting ready for our trip to WDW next week!

I hope this thread continues until after I get back 4/15. I KNOW I'm going to need to WATP when I get back.

Woke up feeling enormous today. I am staying way away from the scale and all mirrors...anyone want to walk with me?

PartyofSix
03-29-2003, 08:56 AM
Glo I am feeling exactly the same way. I feel like a cow today. All bloated an stuff. I may do something crazy like NOT weight in tomorrow. I'm feeling so depressed. I have done a tape everyday this week (2miles) and the firm ab tape twice and now i have a sore throat and just feel all bloated. Since you are my mentor (did i tell you?) I don't think i'm doing something right. I was doing the ab tape every day and a 1mile walk and loosing 2-3 a week i've actually had less to eat this week avg only about 700 cal as i was eating under 1000 prev weeks. And i skipped my brk almost all week. Does it make sense to you that i may not be eating enough to loose with more exer. on my adjenda? I need some quick weight in tips for today if i'm even gonna consider getting on the scales tomorrow. Any advise for my GLo or anyone?

glo
03-29-2003, 10:26 AM
I can tell you, I do not do well when I drop my calories that low. My body goes into starvation mode and holds onto every single little ounce. I have to eat no less than 1200 calories or I stall big time. Also, it took a month for me to loose any weight at all once I started exercising. I did not listen to everyone saying that it was because I was turning fat into muscle(and muscle burns more too) and muscle weighs more than fat. I finally listened to Nativetxn and measured and three weeks later I had not loss an ounce, but had lost 6.75 inches :) So, that is what happened to me. Do nt starve yourself, and stay off the scale and try meausuring...

Do not give up....and boy did you pick a nutcase to be your mentor :p

PartyofSix
03-29-2003, 01:12 PM
Thanks for the advise Glo. I knew i better but really was'nt hungry and was'nt thinking i guess that my body needed me to eat. I may not weight tomorrow and just measure it's been awhile since i did that. I have been keeping up with the measuring on weight command. I just wish this feeling would go away becuase i know i'm loosing if that makes since. I tried on a pair of 14 tommy jeans yesterday to see how far i was and it seems to challenge me. Everytime i drop a size i wait about 2 weeks and go try on the next smallest size>LOL Anyway they buttoned and zipped while standing>LOL I looked like a stuff sauage and that belly roll just was to die for.LOL I would like them to fit at the end of next month so i stepped up my exercise. I'm gonna take the weekend off exercizing because i moved from 3-4 times a week to 5 now so today and tomorrow i will force myself not to plug in a single tape and let my body relax a bit and then start eating right and go at it next week. I'm sure my husband will make me weigth unwillingly with him in the morning. He has dropped more than 30lbs two pants sizes and a shirt size so far. He has a lot more weight to loose than me though he wanted to loose 150lbs! I have 100 i wanted to loose so we are both motivating each other and he's really into loosing now. He had a bad knee prob so he just started exercizing last week and i had been going strong for 3 weeks now. Oh i'm wearing your ear out anyways thanks again for encouraging me your suggestions.

Hello everyone!

I have been doing the tapes for 3 weeks now and just found this thread. I am still working the 1 mile, 2 mile tapes (I have even broken the cellophane on the 3 mile tape!) with the weighted balls. Glo, after reading your article, I am doing the 1 mile tape on carpool mornings, and the 2 mile tape before eating breakfast when I don't have to drive. I hope I start seeing some toning under this 'mess'. :rolleyes: (I have LOTS to lose!)

Anyone want to comment on the Ab belt tapes, versus the regular 1,2,3 mile tapes with the weighted balls? My friend has the ab belt and broke it within 3 weeks! I was just wondering if there is that much of a difference between them. She lives 300 miles away so I haven't been able to preview them. ;)

I *love* doing the WATP tapes! See you in the morning, Glo!

Well, I bought the dvd that has the 1, 2 and 3 mile walk (also came with belt) and I did it for the first time today. The 1 mile wasn't bad so I went ahead and did the 2 mile. I liked it alot! Although, I wonder how my leg muscles will be feeling tomorrow???????? :D

You can buy one on leslies site (http://www.lesliesansone.com/videostore.jsp?pageId=2080401752131037054098701) but it costs $19.95 plus s/h so you might be better off buying the tapes and giving them to a friend, selling them on ebay.

I just did the 3 mile a little while ago. I actually enjoy these "walks", it's just the arm exercises with the belt that gets me! At least there's not too much of that!

Nope! I actually just started do the walking on Monday and I really like it. I did it Monday thru Wed but had to take Thursday off b/c my muscles were hurting! I did the 2 mile yesterday and I'm leaning toward the 2 rather than 3 today, just don't have it in me today!

Not me, my body is aching from painting! And, I only did it for about 7 hours! It's pretty bad when you can't even sit on your b*tt painting, or stand on a ladder without hurting for the entire week following! :rolleyes:

I did the 1 mile tonight. I considered not doing any, but thought 1 mile is better than none. Actually, it felt pretty good. I'm glad I did it.

What's that?

You want to do 3 miles instead? Okay! You're on!! :teeth:

Howdy everyone!! I just started up with my WATP tapes last week. I've been trying to do them in the morning on the days I do advanced pilates so I can do those in the evening. Today and yesterday I did the 2 mile with the weighted balls. I also just got the newer tapes with the "stretchie" but haven't broken them in yet.

Does anyone have them? What do you think?

Cheers!

geetey
04-24-2003, 03:50 PM
Getting ready to do the 2 mile. Maybe it will help with these TOM cramps. :crazy:

CrzyforPiglet - A group of us have been doing the tapes for awhile now. Aren't they great?? I don't have the abs set. I am saving those for when I get burnt out on this set - or my abs start showing through! :eek: LOL! Enjoy!!

Great Job!!! I went crazy and did 4 miles (the 3 mile and then the 1 mile) because I was watching the Oprah show and got even MORE motivated!!!!

I've been looking everywhere for this thread - whew!! What a work out :p I did the 2 mile express workout yesterday and today (with the stretchie band) Similar to the weighted ball workout but the walk seemed much more brisk. I'm not sold on the stretchie - i think we did only 4 exercises with it and it turned my hands purple!! I'm going to substitute the weighted balls instead and see what happens.

Keep on walking!

:eek: Is that stretchie thing from the ab tapes? Purple hands does not sound like a good thing to me! :eek:

I did my 2 miles again today. Something is happening here though. When I finished I felt like I hadn't really done anything! Ack! Surely I couldn't be that conditioned to the tapes already! I am thinking of getting some ankle weights to boost things up a bit. Or try and find more time for the 3 mile. ;)

Keep walking and drinking water!!! :teeth:

No, geetey, the stretchie comes with the WATP Express tapes. The Ab tapes have a belt with resistance cords. I've not had any problems with the Ab belt and discolored hands.

Have a great day!

Terry,

Got an alert from Amazon today that there are three WATP tapes that were released today.

Also, Leslie will be on QVC on Friday with the TSV. Don't know which tapes they will have Friday.

Also they have the WATP/Abs at Sam's Club, BJ's, and Kohl's.

Hi, Michelle,

The TSV on QVC stands for Today's Special Value. It is the lowest price that QVC will offer a certain product and only on a specific day. The TSV begins at 12 midnight (eastern) and ends at 12 midnight when a new TSV takes effect.

Have a great day :)

Anyone interested in single WATP tapes, my local BJs had two express tapes today. One is Walk Strong and runs for 30 minutes. The other is the Super Challenge - 4 Miles and runs for 60 minutes. The 4 mile claims to give a health-club quality workout and does not say it uses a stretchie. They were $7.99 each.

Lois:D

I just bought a set of ten Walk Away The Pounds tapes, and have done the one mile walk three times this week. I think these tapes are great, I just have to get motivated to do them a little more often.
