Hey guys and gals.

My name is Jake. I've been suffering from Crohns Disease since 2008. For the past 6 years, I've barely had any physcial activity or movement because it also affected my joints. Though I'm finlly starting to be stable from this Disease. And I am tired of being weak, having no muscle, and scrawny. As of now, I am about 110lbs and 5'4" about.

I want to change my life. I want to change how I look, and become a new person. I want to be able to have people look at me and notice a change, or if they didnt know me, just look at me and realize that i work out and look toned/strong.

I think I have the motivation, but i need guidance on what I should do. I've been trying some workouts/programs, so far I've been doing the Strong & Toned Arms L1. So far, so good with those. I've been noticing some improvements on my arms and chest area, but I want to keep pushing on, and advance more. For now, I've been using 10 lb weights.

My goal is to not have a body that reminds me of my "old" self. I want to try and transform my life, and my body. I eventually want to have toned, strong arms and hopefully and eventually a 6-Pack. And just overall, a strong and toned body.

If you took the time to read this, I appreciate it. And I hope you can offer some guidance on where you think I should start, or how I should go about this. I would truly appreciate it.

Hey man 
I'd like to congratulate you on making the decision to change and having the determination to press on.
Keep up the determination and good things will happen, no matter which exercises you do. 
I apologise in advance as I am not going to be specific, but hopefully another person with more knowledge and experience than I will come along and provide more assistance. 
What I did when I first started, was to identify the areas which I most want to see improvement (which I believe you have done). I then browsed through workouts, filtering my search for my target areas. I then tried a few (and it is a trial and error process to find the workouts that just work out for you (pun intended )) 
I also would complete a general health workout (like the Scientific 7-Minute Workout) after my targeted workouts 
This process really helped me and I saw awesome results in my target areas. 

Long story short, I believe it's a trial and error process to work out which workouts are for you

I wish you all the best
