I am looking for a good aerobics/fitness video, but it needs to be a bit gentle. I used to run before I had my ds, but unfortunately, as I am still BFing, I develop mastitis when I run. (I had it 8 times, and then finally figured out that if I stopped running, I didn't get it anymore.) I would imagine that if I did any strenuous exercise with my arms, I would get it again.

Any suggestions? I don't want to fork out money for a video that I will never use!

My approach is to try them out first by checking them out of the library. I also scan the videos section of thrift shops and watch out for them at garage sales. I never pay more than $0.75 for one, so I figure I'm not out much if it's a dud. (Of course, by saying this, I'm assuming that English libraries are somewhat similar to US ones in that they have a video selection....) I can only stand to hear the same dumb joke a few times, so I need to have a bit of a collection to do exercise videos consistently.

What about walking? Do you have a good sprots bra that doesn't pinch and gives enough support? My sister had the same mastitis problem with playing soccer. She was able to resume playing soccer about 6 mo postpartum. She'd nurse right before playing and again at halftime.

I absolutely love the Walk Away the Pounds videos. They are not strenuous on my knees and I find them fun, motivating and really positive. I lost 30 pounds while using the videos.
