Never let it be said that I have gained all my donations because of my beauty.

Which probably explains why there are NO donations. Oh well, I'll keep the ChipIn going, but it gets frustrating that a woman who HOLDS a job can get massive donations to get a breast enlargement but a man who WANTS to go back to work gets no help towards accomplishing this.

Trying yet again!

Okay, the last ChipIn closed without a single donation, so let's try this again. My new ChipIn, which by the way will go to buying a NuStep T5xr and having it shipped out to California, runs until April 4th, 2010. I really need to raise the $6,500 it will cost for the T5xr, large seat and shipping via your donations because I cannot and have not found another way to raise the funds.

Please. I just want to get down so I can go back to leading a productive life. If you just donate $10 (and get 649 of your friends, neighbors and co-workers to do the same) I can get this and do the right thing - which is to exercise my heart out until I lose 385 pounds!

I've been trying by modifying my diet and doing the weight-training that my body can currently handle, but it's not enough. I need to do two-three hours of aerobic exercise each day, and with my osteoarthritis and massive weight, I need a recumbent exercise system that can allow me to do so without risking major injuries to my legs. I'm willing to commit to the time each day, but without a T5xr, I'm risking making myself PERMANENTLY disabled long before I can reach my goal weight.

Once again I'm trying to raise funds for a NuStep T5xr. Please donate. If only 300 people donate $20 each, I'll have the funds to get one of these machines. I desperately need this as it's designed for someone as morbidly obese as I am and will help me get the aerobic, LOW-IMPACT exercise I need to regain control of my weight and my life!

Guess that people really don't care to help.

It's close to the end of my attempt to raise donations for the NuStep T5xr and I have received *NO* donations. Guess that means there just isn't any interest in helping a person out. So, when the deadline ends, I'll just fold up the attempt.

I found a competitor to the NuStep T5xr!

And it's significantly CHEAPER than the T5xr! It is called the Elgin Cross Stepper and as you can see from the photo, it has the same arm-and-leg action that the NuStep has. The main difference I can see is that it doesn't have a swivel-around-to-get-on seat pedestal, but I don't think that is such a big problem. It is also rated at 600 pound user weight and it appears to give the same level of aerobic workout that the NuStep does.

So I think maybe I'll look into it. Still, at $3,195 plus shipping and taxes, it ain't cheap. Thus, I'm asking for you to consider donating or buying a BeBook or Kindle through my associates links.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

If you don't want to buy a BeBook or Kindle ebook reader through my associate's pages, you can just click on the ChipIn button at the end of this post.

I just finished watching the finale of Biggest Loser.

Man, it was AWESOME inspirational! When Jerry lost 47.97% - almost all of which was done at home, and Helen lost 54.xx% to become the two winners... Think about it, these were two of the oldest 'biggest losers' they've had on the show.

Y'know, I asked whether I could be a contestant and they flat said no. I'm 51, weigh 570 pounds and just am not fit enough. After the scare they had with Jerry, I get the idea they aren't sure it's worth the risk. Still, if I can get an aerobics program started at home, I may be able to lose an equivalent amount of weight. For me, that means I could lose 250-285 pounds. The thought just boggles my mind!

Would you rather read from a 9.7" screen?

Click here to pre-order a Kindle DX!

Please note: buying through the above link lets you PRE-ORDER the Amazon Kindle DX. It won't actually ship until June, but by pre-ordering, you'll be assured yours will ship within the first two days! No waiting for months for the second shipment from the manufacturer to arrive.

This Kindle is functionally the same as the Kindle 2, but instead of a 6" screen, the DX has a 9.7" screen for about TWICE the screen real-estate. That means more words on screen even at the larger font sizes. And it does a better job of displaying textbooks, reference books and graphic novels. Always a plus!

Do yourself a favor and pre-order your Kindle DX through my associate's page and also get the good feeling that you've helped me in my drive to raise enough ($45 per DX pre-ordered) for a NuStep.
