Stair Climbing

Hi ya'll,

As my new years resolution I want to get down to 120. Here's what I found out about climbing stairs.

First off I'm a 20 year old college student and is constantly climbing the stairs now its been about a month since I started my resolution and I already had lost 5lbs from my starting weight.

I learn that if I do a slight run up the 40 stairs I can use about 2/10 of a pound. Also eating healthy food and drinking only water helps keep the weight off.

Jenn,

WTG on that 5!

That's the way to think, though, to do what we can in our daiy lives and keep doing them when we have lost the weight.

Good for you.

Welcome Jenn,

Congrats on the 5 lbs !!!

You are so right about the water, it's winter and I find it hard to drink it compare to the summer.
Thank for the exercise tip.
