    I think most programs like that are on youtube now, so you could look for others as well.

    AWESOME!! Thanks heaps!

    Yes you will see results. How old are your kiddies? Can they ride a bike to make you keep up the pace? Or if young enough in a stroller walking quickly. It can't be a stroll it needs to get your heart rate up. Most people loose interest if they dont see results 'quickly' so it needs to be at a pace where you will defiantly shed some Kgs.

    Zumba would be good for cardio aswell. But I have to insist you do some resistance training!!!

    Even sit-ups, push ups, dips, squats, hovers etc at home. More muscle means more calories burned. You won't 'bulk up' I assure you.

    I'm 174cms and 60kg (and a personal trainer I do weights 3 times a week (plus more in classes) and have done so for the last 10 months and I'm not bulky. I promise. It takes high weights (and I mean MAX weight) few reps and a particular diet for hypertrophy.

    Maybe you could skip the squats if your legs are already muscular (although they are great for your bum & thighs) and try some cycling, power walking pilates.

    Are you trying to loss 'weight' or 'fat'?

    Yeah I know, I'm the one that posted it LOL - looks like AndrewTheEmu's post got mashed and all that happened was my original post (which she'd quoted) had been reposted and she hadn't actually typed anything..........

    I have no idea what I'm trying to lose. To me, my legs are fat but I danced for years so they were quite muscular as well.

    I don't own a bike so pilates and cycling would mean attending a gym. Maybe a spin class?
