What Is Excercise To You!

Excercise is anything that gets and keep you moving! I'm often asked what type of excercise do I do? Traditional...treadmill, elyptical, and spin/recumbent bike, etc... But I get bored, tired, and fed up with the same ole thing! How many of you feel the same way? I like to have fun, So I started dancing to burn some calories.

Most of you that watched me on The Biggest Loser know that I incorporated dancing as part of my workout routine. Dancing, for me, burned 1100 calories an I would dance as many hours as I could.

To keep moving...I also did yard work...cut the grass, rake leaves, swept the curb and sidewalk...those of you that do yard work know,
that's a workout. I'm sharing these things, so that you get an idea of ways you can start burning calories.

Whatever exercise is too you, make it fun!! Let me know how it goes!

Losers Make Excuses, Winners Make it Happen!

There's no quick fix. There's no instant magic pill that's gonna help you lose the weight. You have to put in the dedication, the blood, the sweat, the tears. I can tell you from personal experience that it takes...SELF MOTIVATION! No one can make you do it, you have to want to do it yourself.

For those of you who don't me, I'm Carla Triplett. I was on The Biggest Loser Season 7 and was the Heaviest Women Ever in the history of the show. I weighed in at 379lbs, I lost a total of 128lbs, and my journey still continues. This blog is about sharing my weight loss story, so that I can encourage, motivate, and inspire others who are struggling with losing weight.

Excuses are made to satisfy yourself, and no one else. Let's be winners together!
