    I would stick with the elliptical because it causes less impact on the knees. Therefore, in the long run, you will be able to exercise more without painful surgery. Also, add weight machines. Those will make you feel great. Splurge on a trainer, and get a plan. Also, eliminate starchy foods from your eating plan. You will see the fat melt away immediately; i.e., pasta, white bread, all grain, rice, beans, sugar, margarine, dairy. Well, that may sound extreme, but eat fresh fish and seafood two meals a day plus leafy green vegetables. Then, see great loss of fat. Anyway, you aren’t overweight, so it is just a matter of adjusting what is there, replacing fatty tissue with muscle. But if you are a woman, there is an inclination to gain in those areas that is genetic and not easy to do without lots of work. As my nieces teach aerobics, they have told me this; and I can see, that despite children, they are quite lean and fit.

    It’s the same thing. It depends on the intensity you do each machine. If you sprint on the treadmill then go on a level 1 resistance on the eliptical the treadmill is a better choice. If you do a high resistance on the eliptical then walk on the treadmill then eliptical is better.

    Hi Patti. If you have been doing the same thing for a while, your body might be used to it and therefore you will not get the same results as you did when you started. One hour of cardio sounds like a lot though. Why so much? Do you do any resistance training? Are you doing low intensity or high intensity cardiovascular exercise? Try to change it up a little but. Instead of just the elliptical do some bike or walk fast on an incline on the treadmill. That’s what I did and it helped me lose a lot of body fat (45 lbs).

    Good luck!!
