    Lemme tell you something. Your body acts oddly, differently than you would expect. Whenever you work, you gain muscles in the areas that you are working, right? Well, your fat doesn't work the same way. Most girls gain/lose in their breasts (disappointing, I know!). So even if you go biking, you could lose belly fat instead of leg fat, and if you do situps and have rockhard abs, you could still have that belly fat. It's really dependent on what your body is and how it acts.

    I agree with the above. Try sweating. Try the simple rule. Make more go out and than you want to go in. If you WANT to do the pooping method, eat lots and lots and lots of fiber. Make things easy on your digestive system. Drink lots of fluids so that you retain very little and get rid of a lot, and take any opportunity to get rid of fat by sweating.

    I have found that if you want to take up jogging but can't find someone to go with you, either take a dog or your horse. I personally don't do it cause I am very lazy by nature but I have a friend that takes his horse for a 2 mile run every morning before beginning the day's work. Plus, helps get your horse in shape and burn off excess energy from them.

    Jogging IS SO NOT for me. It actually hurts my knees. I can do it for short distances. I am going to see about getting the treadmill out and doing that.

    Truely I am lazy by nature as well. It's kind of embarassing,lol.

    I completely understand that. I have the same issues with it hurting when I try to run. Pretty much anything to get your heartrate up in the heat will be best. Eat a small breakfast, drink lots of water (or I prefer the low calorie G2 gatorade, it quenches my thirst better than regular), and eat a balanced dinner several hours before you go to bed. Here I am trying to preach with my own horns and pitchfork showing LOL. I can't make myself work out either. ;p

    Hahaha I do stalls and clean and regular barn chores, but I have a grass jumping arena and a sand jumping arena and I end up having to move my jumps almost every day because of the rain. I used to haul them around with a flatdeck attached to the tractor but I started carrying everything one at a time and not only do I work up a heck of a sweat but I'm getting really toned arms!
    I'm down 6 pounds already but I have to have facial surgery in two weeks and I'm going to be on liquids for a long time so I'll probably lose a lot more.
