Getting in shape is finally paying off.
I am still working out since Dec. 2008. I slipped off the cardio train for a few months in 2008 and I am back on it. I am one who needs to work out every day. I can't eat what I please in large amounts. I have to have a serving size. Otherwise I gain lbs fast. If I rest I rust. I feel aches and pains. I get lower back pains and I feel tired. When I work out I am roaring and ready to go. I am on fire. I totally like how that feels. Its just having to DO the cardio to get that feeling. But it also get another feeling stirred. The OMG look at those sexy curves coming out. I used to weight almost 200 lbs. YES in my 20's. I am now in my 30's and I have kept my weight at 130. I went to a personal trainer 2 years ago to learn how to stay fit. I can tell you that is the best investment for someone who wants to know how to take care of ones self. I now know how to keep my body in tip top shape. I know what to eat and what moves to do. Everyone is different and has a different body. You just have to investigate what yours is doing and then work on it. I love weight training. Its more personal training for your body parts. If you use 5, 8 or 10 lbs you can make your muscles shine too. Just do it. Remember you will loose inches before you loose weight. Don't focus on a number. EVEN THO WE DO. DON'T! Its the inches that let you slip into them smaller jeans.

"Lean muscle mass naturally decreases with age. If you don't do anything to replace the muscle loss, it'll be replaced with fat. But weight training can help you reverse the trend — at any age. As your muscle mass increases, you'll be able to work harder and longer before you get tired. You'll maintain joint flexibility, increase bone density and better manage your weight.
