I am about 85 pounds overweight - ughhhh! I have heard good things about using a rebounder to lose weight. I also have a treadmill -- this year I want to shed 85 pounds but I have to be realistic and start with maybe 20 pounds at time, if you have used a rebounder or have any words of encouragement they would be appreciated -- I really need to set some goals here -- any suggestions?

All you need is to believe in yourself that you can do it. I never used a rebounder. I believe in daily exercise. I go for an hour daily walk and I have lost around 20kgs in around 11 months. I lost weight gradually. I did not see a remarkable improvement at first. You have to eat healthy foods, avoiding a lot of fats and fast foods.

I'm sorry, but what is a rebounder? To loose weight you can intake your water drinking, and just cut out salty snacks and sugared snacks. That will start you. Take it a day at a time, and you are right to start with a realistic goal, so it isn't overwelming. I also will suggest the smart frozen dinners. They have points on them. Eating them each day, you will loose weight. Good luck dear.

Thank you, I drink only water (occasionally a diet pop), don't do salt (high bld pressure), no sugary snacks. Realistic goals are hard for me, I am "brat" I want it all gone "now" lol :) -- seriously I am trying just to do 10 pounds increments for now.. I used to do the tv dinners but the sodium content in most of them is too high for me. My husband and I are thinking of counting calories ugh!!! But I'm going to give it a try it might work better if we are doing it together - A rebounder is a small trampoline that you bounce up and down on - I've read that they are supposedly very good for balance and for people with joint issues and that simply "bouncing" or rebounding for 15-20 a minutes a day can help you lose weight and stay in shape -- I think I might be able to handle "bouncing" for a few minutes each day, but I don't want to waste the money and time if its not worth it:) thanks for the words of encouragement :)

I think do cardio is the best thing for oyu... it gets you fit, its fun, and you lose weight. Running and swimming are probably your best options... good luck!
