With all due respect Stephenie, you are wrong. I am a personal trainer and exercise physiology major. HIIT would burn fat, but I assure you, walking does not. If you did a body composition test before and after the month of April, I am willing to bet that it would say you lost a fair amount of muscle and water, but not fat.
I will check with the vet and get her thoughts. I don't mind running with the Dog if that will help. She had a fair amount of muscle developed from our walking. It may be just the adjustment in her calorie intake will help. She can't be the only fatty in the house -- she would be embarrassed.

Stephanie you have done so great! Keep it up.
Scott- what programs do you reccommend? The only Gym we have near by only has treadmills and weights so that is certainly not worth my money.
Angela - thanks - my pants and skirts fit better! I rewarded myself with a new pair of jeans. Our local gym doesn't have alot but its so close and convenient. This time of year I use it for weights only. I need to start mixing that in with my walking. Too bad we don't live close we could both walk with my chubby dog. Ha!
we are all doing great. I like keeping track here. I have never done that before. I am heading out in a little bit to help mulch the trails at our local park. I figure doggie and I use them I should help. Leola is May 12th a special day for you. It has a smiley face on it...just curious.
May workout log

Welcome Stylist! I think it is funny that so many of us do Leslie S. and Jillian M.
I've currenly fallen off the wagon, but hope to get back on track once my hours change at work. I'll have more time in the morning
Ive been a long time fan of Leslie.... have over 50 of her dvd's
Jus recently became a fan of Jillian
I also LOVE Turbo Jam and YogaBootyBallet
Heres some quick cheater routines: for those days you only have a few minutes to squish in some work: (all are 8 minutes from the 8 minute fitness dvd)

Please dont take this the wrong way, but I gotta say it.....
While I appreciate the fact that your a certified trainer or went to school for it, or whatever it is you have done, your motivational skills are seriously lacking. Your words of encouragement are demeaning at best. What you fail to understand is that not every human body is built for HIIT training that you are promoting. Telling people that walking doesnt burn fat etc, is very off-putting. Why not say Good Job! or Way to Go! Just because people are not doing YOUR preferred method of training doesnt mean their efforts are wasted, or not going to work as you say. The point here is that people ARE trying to lose weight, and should be congradulated rather than told they are doing it wrong. People have busy lives, various medical problems etc etc. I imagine if you worked at a public gym would you tell the 400 pound woman she would NEVER loose weight if she was walking at 1mph on the treadmill for 4 hours a day? Im sure you would get fired. See my point? (((Probably not--Owell))
Anyhow, Ive put you on Ignore. You just go on ahead discouraging folks all you like, the rest of us normal people will keep on trying and doing the best we can. I certainly hope you can put your certified, chicken fried HIIT training certificate of completion to good use somewhere in your life. Perferrably in a cult where everyone will listen to you.
