Does anyone know if it really is as good if you exercise like in two or three small increments that add up to 20-30 minutes a day, or if it is better to do the 20-30 minutes all at once?
I started having trouble exercising even back before I gained weight. I was getting fatigue and muscle weakness. So now, being so fat, it's even more difficult. I can get through the exercise, like walking or I'll dance with my daughter. But it's the exhausted and really drained and fatigued feeling afterwards that I hate. Although for some reason, if I do something more fast paced for a shorter amount of time, like fast dancing or jogging in place for ten minutes, I don't feel as cruddy afterwards. Where as if I go for a 20 minute, average-paced walk, I feel worse after. I am so screwed up. Will I ever figure myself out?
Sounds like most people here are needing to lose like ten or twenty pounds. Is there anyone here who is needing to lose large amounts like myself? And if so, how are you doing with the exercise part of it? This is the part I think most books and diet plans fail to include us huge people. We can't start off doing like 30 minutes aerobics a day, six days a week. We'd be lucky to be able to do like five or ten minutes a day, like three or four times a week. Otherwise, I know for myself, my fatigue will get so bad it will interfere with my work and getting stuff done around the house.
