Holy cow-Ollies just opened up here. Haven't been there yet but I was told they have a lot of books and other variety of things. Thanks for that; we'll hit Ollies today and see if we can find any of his dvds there. Never would've thought of that.

I was thinking to be out of the game way too long starting the programs here. I was really hurting and discouraged but have a positive personality so kept on trudging. I also have a team at home that are the best cheerleaders to me ever! My husband sat with me a few days ago after was just feeling like I couldn't keep rythm (well couldn't do that so well 20 yrs ago lol-no excuse there) and really feeling like I was out of sinc. Found Sweatin to the oldies again.

No downloads even on amazon but I got the dvd again and went at it today. Oh, I forgot it was fun to have no rythm and just let loose lol! Got half way through and proud for the first day after decades being off. The man was a help long ago and now still. Kids groaned lol but the younger 15 yr old finally got up and danced a bit with me lol.

Back in the 80's Richard Simmons was my inspiration to lose 105 lbs. in 13 months. And I kept it off for many years. It wasn't until menopause hit in 2005 that I regained every pound I had lost plus they brought friends. So now I'm working to re-lose most of the weight. My hubby is also working to lose 60 lbs with me. We set a 60 lb goal back in Sept. and so far he's down 27 lbs. and I'm down 20 lbs.

Welcome, Jenny!

I did Richard's Sweatin' 2 just 2 days ago.

We all need something to believe in. I did the "Food Mover" back when it had been "Deal-a-Meal". I'd even gone to the support group, Project Me.

Unfortunately back then, it had not worked for me. Did not do any Richard videos in those days ... just his Take A Walk ...

Hello! My name is Jenny, I have been at this weight loss journey for 10 years. I have lost 55 pounds total and 50 of it came off with the Food Mover. Christ has been my motivation, and Richard Simmons my inspiration :) I look forward to re-committing to the Food Mover, receiving support from this group, and Lord willing taking off the last 30-40 pounds and moving into maintenance! thanks for having a place for me to plug in!

I am new to this team. I am not new to Richard Simmons' work on dieting and motivation; However, I am very, very, very new to his workouts (after a good part of a lifetime....)

My sister has been a fan of his for years; but the story goes back to her getting me a membership in his then-print newsletter Club ... Without warning, the stuff had come in the mail. I later found out, and was very happy she like Simmons--maybe that would be the key to finally get her to leave Weight Watchers. They'd sold me a bill of goods way back when, and whether successful in weight loss or not at any one time, I would never go to Weight Watchers meetings again.

But that was not to come to pass.

She got bored with his (exercise) stuff, never left Weight Watchers; and I got introduced to his stuff ...

Fast forward to today:

Last night I did do Richard Simmons Sweatin' 3 ...aannd it felt more like a demented dance lesson more than Workout ... in more halcyon days not so very long ago, I took live dance lessons in cardio pilates, Masala Bhangra and belly dance. Studio lessons.

Well, this Sweatin' to the Oldies 3 felt like one non-TIFTing dance lesson and felt like the socko finish in intensity before the cool-down. Such sequencing in intensity, was decades ahead of its time; so in its time it was probably not so popular like his others'

Finished out of breath. And he calls every squat-based movement a plie ... and has no terminology for all the plies done ... I think he normally has his stance such that his feet are in a kind of 2nd position ... so maybe that's the confusion ... [club foot or something he's had all his life ...]

Anyway, I so enjoyed it much more than when I'd last done it, 11 years ago (and it hadn't been my own copy]--because of the numerous previews of this DVD ... I don't remember too well, though. But there's gotta be fewer skipped steps.

I had it in my hands night before yesterday; and it's gonna probably be re-previewed here and there ... because NO CUEING ...

Hello everyone! Nola here. I live in Chiefland, FL. I am married to DH Dave. I love to ride my horse and camp with my 4 furbabies. I have no children, just the 4 dogs, 1 cat and Charlie Brown my hot chocolate Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse/Rocky Mountain Saddle Horse. I joined SP in July and with lots of effort, I am now down 22.7 pounds. I also started a Gluten Free lifestyle. What a challenge for me! LOL I love working out and I really get motivated by Richard Simmons. He has such energy, that it makes you want to get out there and work off the pounds. I still have 30 pounds to lose, but I'm taking it one day at a time! It didn't come on over night and it certainly isn't coming off over night! You've got to work for what you want! :) I look forward to meeting more of the Spark People friends and the challenges ahead! :)

Welcome back - Richard Simmons is a great way to get your feet wet again - I love Sparks food tracking program - once you put things in it is much easier to put them in the second time - I do it diligently - it helps keep me on the straight on narrow.

I am rejoining the team. I feel like I've tried everything, then I go off and gain the weight back. Feeling down and ready to totally give up…then I thought of Richard Simmons. That's what I need! So I'm going to dig out my VHS videos and DVD's plus find the food tracker gizmo. I need something simple and easy to follow plus an easier way of tracking than typing everything into Spark's nutrition tracker. I just want to get healthy and allow the weight loss to follow naturally.

ALL ABOUT ME.
My name is Fay, and I live in Tennessee. I was born December 10, 1938 in a small community in North Florida. I married my best friend, Orlis in 1969. We are retired and have no children and no pets, but lots of nieces and nephews and they all have pets. We love them all.
As for snacks, I love Chex Mix. I have a half cup with a Diet Coke every afternoon and it really perks me up. If I have been good all week, I have a glass of Cabernet & club soda (3 oz. of each) with my Chex Mix on Saturday evening.
I have been a Richard fan for at least 30 years. For my workout, I pop "Sweatin' to the Oldies" in my dvd and hop on the treadmill. My hobbies are cooking, reading and writing.
Until a month ago, our lives were centered around our church. Regrettably, that has changed and I am very sad about it. We are visiting other churches but have not found one.as yet.

Hi! My name is Carolyn. I am married with a 17 year old daughter. I am bipolar and have borderline personality disorder. Depression makes it hard to get the energy up to exercise but I know Richard can get me moving again. About 16 years ago I used Richards dancing to the oldies 1,2,3, and Twist and Shout videos and los t30 lbs. Unfortunately I did not continue with them and gained all the weight back and more. I'm planning to revisit my old VHS tapes (still have a VHS machine), and my new Oldies 4 dvd this month. I love his videos. He interviewed me on one of his radio shows about 6 or 7 years ago, and I loved talking to him. He is my inspiration.

Hi my name is Darlene but my friends call me Dar. I have 2 grown married daughters and the youngest one has 2 daughters and the ages of my granddaughter are 17 and the other one is 12. I lost my husband 8 yrs ago but life has to go on.

I have a few of Richard's tapes and one time I got to see him in person at the Tacoma Dome but can't remember what yr. But it was fun watching him and laughing with him cause he is a lot of fun.

My name is Lucy and I'm a 45 yr. old, happily married, SAHM of four, who needs to lose about 15 more pounds (though a few more probably wouldn't hurt! emoticon ) I joined SP at the end of June and liked it so much, I signed up for SparkCoach, too. emoticon I wanted to do something different for my cardio today, so I just blew the dust off an old Richard Simmon's "Disco Blast-Off" VHS tape-- and had *such* fun! I had forgotten how much I enjoy his videos! emoticon I have others in this series so looks like I'll be dancing some of my fat away with Richard! emoticon
