Thumbs Up Kinect Weight Loss Challenge
I bought Kinect yesteday and have decided to see how much weight i can lose using Your Shape Fitness Evolved.

I will also be eating more fruit and generally eating a bit healthier.

Every day i will post how long i have exercised for, which exercises i did, and how many calories i burned.

Once a week i will post my weight and how much weight i have lost or gained.

At the moment i am 201lbs/91kg...

I am aiming at getting to around 133lbs/60kg Smile

after this i had a few hours break, then proceded to do some more cardio boxing and games:

RE: Kinect Weight Loss Challenge
Cool, do you have a target weight? Looking forward to seeing progress. Drinking water instead of other things is a great way to lose weight as well.

Good luck!

My legs are acheing quite a bit from the squating in the boxing, but i was expecting that.

RE: Kinect Weight Loss Challenge
Cool Emiingham. Keep at it. Personally, I have been playing 1 20 minute fitness workout. I still have 8 days left in th program and will see it through. It's only 109 calories each time I play but I usually do a few rounds of virtual smash and another minigame. I'm probably at 150 avg calories burned per day.

Even though I haven't done them in a few days, I agree with you that the cardio boxing is the most fun- especially when doing the jab, cross, hook, uppercut combo's. Makes you feel like a boxer Wink.

RE: Kinect Weight Loss Challenge
Wow, congratulations. You had a strong start and slowed down a bit. If you want to push yourself harder, try to exercise everyday or every second day. If you continue at this pace, it will take you 13-14 weeks to reach your goal, that's pretty good. Can't wait for you to reach your goal. Smile
