I've been on skimble for 2weeks now and I'm improving significantly. When I started my stamina was low. Now I find I'm more flexible and stronger. With just the right amount of soreness. Now Im ready to step it up. My daughter is working out with me and I'm more flexible than she is. Which is a good thing since she's only eight (kids are usually pretty bendy) I'm 5'4" and 166 lbs. My body is starting to shape up.
Any suggestions on your favorite workouts that make you feel like your making progress?

You don't necessarily lose weight the few moments you start.  Getting energy back is actually a good sign.  When you're someone who wasn't working out for years, first thing you do is lightweight training, do the casual ones in skimble (try searching for "beginner's fat burner" workout).  As you gain energy, you also improve your metabolism - that will help start you losing weight.  When your energy is on the right level, you can start doing moderate to intense workout, alongside with good diet.

I need to work on endurance. I have asthma so I've been stepping up slowly. But I've been feeling amazing!
