  • start slow if you do too much then you are more likely to quit.

  • Try a variety of exercises and you wont be bored w/ your workouts. They say any exercise releases endorphines that make us feel good. Good luck :) (*If all else fails, try a glass of wine-lol)

  • You've got to find an exercise routine that you like and will stick with. For me, it's the Turbo Jam series most of the time, and I do a lot of walking and running (5+ miles) when the weather is nice. There are many options you can consider to put together a routine that will keep you coming back for more; you just have to figure out what your workout style is and commit to sticking with it. And to be blunt, THAT is the bottom line: your commitment to fitness and health. I'm so committed to it that if I had to just walk up and down my stairs all day, that's what I'd do because my drive to be in shape and feel good and healthy is so strong. When you stop making excuses, you'll start making progress. Good luck to you.

  • Healthier eating habits, routine exercise, and addressing any other issues which may be weighing (pun not intended) on you, mentally, other than your weight...

    Good luck!

  • Good luck! I think the best way to start is to look at what you're eating. Cut out processed foods, white breads, etc. Then light exercise, like walking daily.
