Do you work out?

I want to start next week. I'm generally slender (size 6) but I do have hips and rump. I don't want to lose weight per say but tone what I have. I wanted to start jogging a couple miles 2-3 times per week but was told that I'd have the body of a string bean if I started that. I was told to do squats and free weights-- but that doesn't help my soft tummy. Any workout regimes that you ladies follow? What results have you acheived?

not and I probably will never do a formal workout. I dance when I feel like having some fun but that's about it.

Hehe well :) honestly I don't even have to do that. I've never had to do anything to maintain my weight. I'm naturally thin. Trust me, I've tried gaining for 2 decades of my life and it never happened.

I've been using an app on my phone and I just started thia past couple weeks but slowly showin results. It's called daily workouts and u can pick areas and how long u exercise. Also workout trainer lets u customize. I hear zumba is a good workout too esp for ur core but i haven't tried it yet. Good luck! I hope ur middle is more cooperative than mine lol

 Jillian Micheals 30 day shred....its on youtube...there is three levels, you do each level for ten days.  All my weight is in my stomach, and I am noticing a difference and its only a week in....I'm really thinking about getting Insanity though.
