Hi Shell, I think it's so strange that you are having your winter now and we are having our summer and when we are getting ready for fall you will be getting ready for your summer. It's still pretty warm here but you can tell that it's going to soon be fall and then we will have our miserable winter. I hate being cold. I didn't realize that our seasons were the exact opposite of yours. My mom has a treadmill and she uses it all the time. I just walk outside. Not because I want to just because it's my only way of getting around. I have no car (I don't drive anyway) so I have to walk. I like to walk but I don't know if I would do it as much if I didn't have to. It's probably good that I have to because it makes get the excercise. I tried the treadmill and almost fell off! Once you get used to it your going to love it! Just make believe you are outside!

Hello Shelly, I love to walk around the neighborhood sometimes. I have an exercize bike that I ride three to four times a week but I dont have a treadmill. I also enjoy bike riding around the neighborhood sometimes. Hugs, Tianna

I have used treadmill, but it will not give you the same pleasure of walking, in the early morning , fresh air.. and all those things will be missed

It's good to know that your husband went and got you that tredmill so you can at least get some excersice some how to stay fit. You claim it's cold there but where it's only Aug. exactly how cold is it there where you can't go out fr your walks? Here it's still in the low 80's uuggg I prefer the 70's weather instead. I know I should get out and start some walking here and there but have become being so tied up of always being on this silly computer every day lol. I don't own a tredmill but have been on my friends that he has and it's tireing to me after a few minutes. I guess it goes to show just how out of shape I am in lol. Well enjoy your tredmill and have fun take care. :)

I think walking is still the best exercise one could have. Walking around your house, at work or anywhere is already considered an exercise. I have tried using a treadmill and it is also fun! Especially with all the fats you will be burning! Just love to sweat it all out! You will enjoy the satistisfaction with it!
