Need Advice!

Hi guys. I am just plugging right along. I have lost 15.2 pounds and have 17.6 to go. My measurements, when I started in April, were 42/39/42 and are now 38/32/40, so I am on a roll. I blogged back at my blog about how I have been struck with Cholinergic Urticaria (aka: exercise induced hives) so I have had to scale back and also do a fair amount of exercise at home.  Though I really prefer to be outside. I got to go out yesterday, without hives, coz it was a rainy day here and cooler than usual for June in Atlanta. Anyway, the Billy Blanks Tae Bo DVDs have always looked interesting to me. I am trying to amass just a small collection of different styles of work out DVDs for when it's too hot to go outside.  (When it gets cold, you WON'T find me inside.)  So, of those of you here that are into Tae Bo (I know Leonie is) what is a good one to start with?

Thanks!
Rachel

Taebo Flex and Taebo Cardio are good for learning instructions and working on form. The newer Taebo Get Celebrity Fit series ( Cardio and Sculpt) also have short instructional segments on the DVDs as a special featutre.

I read about the hives on your blog - getting better?

And I love Taebo! The best music is in the old Lives, only available on VHS but I have bought a few secondhand from Amazon sellers. Cheap. The Live Basics are 30 minutes long, good for Taebo newbies. The Advanced are 60 minutes and are killers - totally get worked out - strength, cardio, flexibility.

Let me know how you go...Rachel
( the other Rachel! lol!) also likes Taebo and has been doing Taebo Postnatal. She might jump in, too.
