    Have you lost a lot of weight using a treadmill?

    I was curious to see if anyone had good results using just a treadmill. I was using a stationary bike, & because of my neck pain, I had to stop. So I am going to use a treadmill. I will be using it at full incline, 2-4mph (fluctuating it) for 30 minutes to 60 minutes a day, depending on my pain level in my neck. I can't do weights or weight training until my neck pain has subsided. Will this be enough for weight loss? I have 4 months to lose 40 pounds (or drop to my goal measurements; which ever comes first.)... I hope I can reach this goal.

    When you have neck pain do not you force yourself to exercise, healthy body is more important. What you need to do is in now is taking a balanced diet and needs to be done with a strong motivation. You can do it while waiting for your neck pain disappeared, good luck!

    Never.  Why, because it is boring to walk miles in one place and look at a TV, or the wall.  I prefer walking in the great outdoors.  So much to see, fresh air and all... It's really motivating.  Now with daily walking outside, I've lost 30lbs.

    I used a treadmill 3 times at full incline,4mph for 30-40 minutes for 3 months and dropped 30lbs. Now I fluctuate the incline and speed only work at it 20 minutes every other day just to stay fit. You can drop measurements by doing some routine exercises, my wife uses a WII Fit while I'm on the treadmill, she only lost 10lbs. but dropped from a 12 to a 8 in the same time, it increases your metabolism. good luck

    No.  never lost a pound doing the most boring exercise known to the cliff dweller.  I won't even use the ones at the Y.  I keep thinking of all those lab animals in our laboratories.  I'm not one of them and I'm certainly not in a cage.  and no one is gonna pull me out and stick needles into me.  No treadmill.
