Hi candy flip

i'm going to throw my name in the ring on the forum and agree with everyone, but add in that the most important thing that you can do is not weight training, but cardiovascular exercise. I imagine that is not great news to you, since you are not an exercise fan, but you just have to do regular cardio - walking, running, cycling, aerobics, etc. This may sound like a drag, but don't forget that a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise does more than just help with weight - it's actually vital to a healthy body, including the heart. So, I really do think that 2005 should be your year for exercise. If you then add to the cardiovascular exercise, and you do the crunces, and arm exercises, then you will see results over the months, but you really have to do make this effort.

Good luck
