You can't. And once the bulk's there the majority won't go so don't start climing mountains if you still plan of fitting into your slim jeans

Problem with that is you lose muscle mass all over your body and end up looking frail. + I lost a load of weight that way and my thighs still stayed big

I use http://www.walkjogrun.net/

Do most of you run outside or in the gym? I've recently got back into running, but can't get used to running in Central London with all the traffic and people (and dogs), so I think I'm going to run in the gym more often from now on…

I can't be arsed with running, I have just started skipping, it's a pretty good work out (makes me feel like I have done at least some exercise) and I can do it in my garden

Laughing out loud Skipping is a manly exercise plus it's quite addictive trying to learn how to do the crossing over stuff etc (no 10 year old girl)

You do it on grass on concrete? I wanted to take up skipping a while back but was worried about the impact of jumping on a hard surface repeatedly.

you skip on your toes, the grass catches the rope so you stop start and all that - do it on concrete
