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.
