If you are serious about altering your body, there are a couple of areas to look at. Does your body have any medical issues that affect you or require treatment or medication?

What physical activities do you enjoy to do? Which ones do you not enjoy? Be honest!

What do you want your body to look like and why? Be specific.

GENERAL THINGS BEFORE YOU START:
1) Start to read, research, learn about nutrition, food, how your body uses food, what types of food are good/bad, how to make meals you would enjoy yet are good for you. Keep a daily journal of your meals/exercise, and be honest, make this a hobby! This is sooooo valuable!

2) Learn about the different types of exercise and if you’re the type of person that needs to see things first hand, get a trainer if only to show you how key exercises are done. Then become a student of exercise and like nutrition, read and learn. If you have the funds for a trainer great! If you don’t just learn as you go and use a trainer only when you need to overcome barriers.

3) “STOP” using weight as a measure of health, it’s “NOT”! There are other measures that are more important to track your progress. One simple thing to do is to take girth (circumference) measurements of key parts of your body i.e. Arm, chest, abdomen, hips, thigh, calf. Do this every month and note in your journal. Just so you know the first thing a “good” trainer will do is conduct a thorough assessment that will include several pages of fitness parameters. You can use these as your “starting point”.

4) “STOP” thinking there is a quick fix to making you look thinner or muscular, there’s “NOT”! Bottom line is that the fix is really free, if you are patient!


HERE IS THE SECRET:
Learn about food & nutrition – Learn about exercise & rest.
Eat good balanced frequent meals, workout at least 3 times per week,
and get quality sleep every night!

Ed, I just thought about a man I knew and worked with, who lost 112 lbs. He was 5'8", 305 lbs. He did what you recommend. "George" started slowly. He would walk about one block three days per week. He added a day when he "listened" to his body and knew it wanted more. As his body adjusted, he added more distance. During the time he was walking, which was about three months, he studied - like you recommend. Later, he added weights and other cardio exercises. His efforts took him two years to lose the weight. In the two years, he passed out five times (in the begining), vomited numerous times, almost bought steriods, could not get out of bed a few times because his body was sore and wanted to give up.
"Excuses are ways people give up on life," George told me one day. "I just kept telling myself, 'Who really cares about you anyway?' My answer was, 'I do.'"
