Hey Yui! Just a note about another typo - looks like the links for 'The "Knuckle-headed" Ninja Workout', 'Zero Budget Workout,' and 'A simplified guide to nutrition' point to the same article. ^_^

09-08-2010, 10:07 PM
Wow, sorry, guys. ^_^;; I should try actually getting some sleep prior to posting threads. Thanks! Lemme know if I goofed anything else up.

Yep, it's possible. Is that the new title you'd like?

09-11-2010, 12:09 PM
The " Is this exercise any good?" Thread. please thank you :D

09-13-2010, 09:29 AM
Um it seems you have wrong link again. ^.^;; The "is this exercise any good thread" is this link (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=219817)not the one you have posted above.

Made some link edits, and added the previously stickied threads to the top of the list. Sorry, I don't want this forum to turn into some other forums where half of the first page is stickied. :P Thanks for understanding!

Is there a way we can have the thread directory in bold text so new users will see it immediately? I think this way we can crack down on redundant new threads.

09-19-2010, 08:01 PM
Bold text means there are new unread posts (for each user once they sign in) - not necessarily a more important topic. Also, with the current site version, there isn't any way to force that sort of text formatting permanently. Having a sticky post is the best we can do at the moment. It is up to each user to check it out on their own. (However, if there ends up being duplicate topics in this sub-forum, feel free to report the posts and we can merge those threads if necessary.)

09-19-2010, 08:23 PM
Cool. Thanks yui! :bigtu:

09-22-2010, 07:20 PM
can this (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=3644885#post3644885) be a separate sticky?:confused: I think it might help things. :bigtu:

Can we make a stickied FAQ thread? With a title urging people to read it before posting a new thread? Every time I come to this forum, I see repeats. We kiiind of have some of that here, but I think it might be nice to have something set up in the form of questions with straightforward answers and links.

I use Slim in 6, meaning you'll be done using this program in 6 weeks.
I just started, but it's fun (with your own music)and it does help with toning, weight loss, and firming. I'm on day 3 but my butt and thighs are sore from all the squats, my arms are getting stronger and I've already seen some loss on my stomach! :angel:

You just have to be persistent and have a great diet.
Slim in 6 has 3 parts to it :

Start it up : 26 mins easy
rev it up : 40mins intermediate
burn it up: 60 mins hard!

Start it up is still kinda hard for me, but I don't weigh that much, only 159 pounds...
It's recommended for you to have your own privacy b/c you will be sweaty, stinky, and doing some awkward squats...(I was doing push ups and my hamster bit my toe :waaaah: I was lucky no one was home... )

Rev it up was really hard for me at first ( I have a different schedule) but I felt good afterwards. I had some green tea( which helps weight loss) and some Yor supergreens
http://www.markrobinsa.com/uploads/7/4/7/0/7470090/9551426.png(helps with skin and weightloss. As well for you to feel good. http://www.markrobinsa.com/supergreens.html)

I am not doing burn it up...yet...
I am a girl but this works for everyone just stay committed :jjacks:

About the Yor products, they aren't a scam. My sister sells these and I've tried them. they smell horrible but taste good with some orange juice or etc.

Hope this helps!

Hey I thought I'd share this here.
I'm going to start working out with freinds and I was going to follow this thread, but I also found this workout channel on youtube and they are really good. Some are just for the abs/obliques and other areas of interest. I hope this helps.
(Sorry if im breaking any rules on the post)

Very helpful. Thank you!

I think the best way is to do the paleo diet, with workouts that are within your fitness level. Just cut out grains, milk products, and anything in a can. So you can still have bacon and fried chicken and almost whatever you want. BUT, make sure that you cut out the grain products.
