Stick with it!  As they say, you didn't gain it in one day and your not going to lose it in one day either.

We are all cheering for you!

OOPS (blush) I got your post in my RSS reader I guess before you were done.  Sorry about that!

I actually bought the Gazelle for my wife per her request.  I would never bring it up but I think she used it once and it sat in a corner ever since.  Then much like the fate of other exercise equipment it migrated from exercise tool to close hanger to furniture to garage.

Sorry to hear about your mixer :(  I just recently got my 250W 4.5Qt Kitchen aid so I'm still getting used to that.  I hope it all works out for you and the new one doesn't have a safety cage.

That's just funny about your hair :)

Cheers

So so sorry about the hair anne, what a bummer....she didnt offer to fix it?  I remember once I went to get my hair done and I just knew by the look on her face that something had gone awry, and then she said, I'll show you it, but just to let you know first "We can fix it" whew!!! 

Stick with the exersise...it isn't pretty nor is it always fun, but the results are always pretty and fun!

[this is good] Before you get a new mixer why not take one shot at fixing the old one?  What do you have to lose?  Besides possibly fixing your mixer you'll get to see the guts of your friend MR. or Ms. Hobart, what could be cooler?  You may only need to replace a gear, gog or band and it'll good to go another 20 years.

As to the exerciser, I didn't say anything at the time but most if not all of the As seen on TV exercisers are crap either in quality of construction or in the ability to injure you.  A treadmill or exercycle, I prefer recumbent) are the simplest.  I picked up a treadmill, recumbent and old style upright cycle as a package for 150 bucks on Craigslist, gave the cycle to my Mom, (I have a Airdyne? already), sold the treadmill and gave away the old style.  Out of pocket, 50 bucks.  Keep watching CL to upgrade, sell yours when you do.  If FreeCycle.org is in your area you might pick one up there.

I have lost 23 pounds in the last few months but I have a lot more to lose than you do and I used a very low calorie approach with a doctor.  Losing weight is easy for me, keeping it off isn't... for anybody.

You could develop the Bake me a cake as fast as you can workout and make a fortune.  Run to the mixer, jump up and down to sift, lift that bag of floor!  Now we're cooking with gas!

Well, since I'm not the boss, I don't have final say, but I do have input. He thought it a better idea to get the new mixer, which has a warranty and is guaranteed to work, so it will buy him time to fix the old mixer, which he definitely is going to do.

Fixing an old Hobart isn't as easy as you'd think. You can't buy new parts from Hobart...only their registered technicians can buy the parts from the company. So you either have to get parts from third party sellers (which I have found on the internet, or from people parting out their old Hobarts).

Yeah, I found out the hard way, about those "AS SEEN ON TV" exercisers. They just looked like so much fun though.....and affordable. I am monitoring Craigslist for a treadmill, and I am the local moderator of Freecycle up here, so I definitely know all about that.

I actually do the "Bake Me a Cake as Fast as You Can Workout" every day. Apparently it's not enough though, for my peri-menopausal metabolism.......!

Annie -- I was doing a search online for the Fitness Flyer because I have one that I need to put back together but I don't have the directions.

Annie

I have since given my Fitness Flyer away. It never came with a manual because I got it second hand......sorry I can't help you!!! Good luck.......
