So you’ve gotten past the hardest hurdle. You’ve convinced yourself you want a toned body and a flat tummy and you’ll do all that you can to get there! So, you headed out to your gym and signed up for a membership while pretending not to be intimidated by all the grunting coming from the guys lifting weights. You’ve headed out to the store and bought matching work-out clothes and had the sales guy talk you into buying the highest performance runners, because, well you’re not joking around. You’re REALLY biting the bullet and doing all that it takes to get into shape, plus – who say’s athleisure isn’t a trend?? You’ve purchased a reusable water bottle and compiled all your belongings into your gym bag with pride – you really look the part. Now it’s game time.
I decided to start exercising, I was nearly 300 pounds. I wore a size 26 in womens and hadn’t seen my toes in who knows how long. But, I am here to tell you that it can be done. I am now a comfortable 170 pounds and have some knowledge that I wish someone had shared with me when I started. These pointers are valid for people who are 30 pounds overweight as well as 200 pounds overweight. The basics are the same.
