I am looking to lose some weight. I do not exercise a whole bunch but I do walk, fast walk, occasionally lift, do sit ups and crunches, etc... But I would like to get into a good routined schedule and would like to get into a lot more fitness than occasional and random working outs. I would also like to work on getting the fat on my belly tone. My stomach, and thighs are my biggest goal to work on fixing. Any advice or ideas on what I can start out doing? Please help!

For starters, sit ups and crunches are not the exercises you want to be doing. They aren't very effective since they only work out one part of your abs- what about the rest? Leg raises, plank, etc are much better. Secondly, no matter how much you work out your abs, you won't be able to see them unless you get rid of all the fat that covers them. So if you are trying to lose weight I would focus more on cardio and weightlifting and once you have dropped some weight then move on to abs....

Hi there. I wondered if you were on a diet as well? I'm in the UK... where are you? I used to be fat. Now I feel great. There's also some really good food apps available. I'll follow you. It seems to give me more GO when people follow me. Good luck babe. X

I just followed you! I find it easier to work out when I see others are doing it too!
