    Ok, well am starting in the next few days, I want to try and find some exercises that will reduce any excess skin belly and 'bingo' wing area, this scares me! I don't want to have mass' amount of excess skin so really just want to tone them areas.

    I currently have 2 cleaning jobs so will be burning alot more then what I am taking in. Any advice would be great!

    Thanks

    Hi

    A lot of girls are doing exercise DVDs like the 30 day shred. Some of us are going to they gym, others swimming, others walking. Before the snow started I had started training to be able to do a 10k run in March It's more about what is going to fit into your life and what you can sustain.

    Whatever you decide to do, if you have not exercised in a long time/are very unfit make sure you build up tolerance and stamina slowly e.g. start off with a 10-15 minute walk that leaves you slightly breathless and warm - don't go out and try to run for 20 minutes. As you get fitter you can add arm weights to pump your arms as you walk. You can also google various home exercise advice (About.com is a fab website for this sort of stuff e.g. http://search.about.com/?q=home+exercise+programme

    It used to be thought that exercising on VLCDs burnt lean muscle tissue increasing the risk of health problems however this has since been proven not to be true. Medical guidances advises exercise should be part of a VLCD programme as making exercise part of how you live your life will help you maintain.

    gg's right. i would say give it 2 weeks on the diet doing your job and general day to day stuff before you start any exercise. weight's will tone. you need to focus on repetition rather than the heaviness of them. the heavier weight might build up too much muscle tone rather than tone you up.
