Six months ago I started my first exercise class mostly because I was having back problems. It was hard but when I was at my third class I said to my self "If I am going to kill myself in this class I am going to make it work for me". I joined fitday and started eating better. Now I am down 30#, I can finally do push ups from a plank (couldn't do any before), I can do all the jack knifes asked to do (was very hard in the beginning), and I am ready to use heavier weights. What I am trying to say is things take time give it more than a month I know you will be glad you did. You can do it...............I wish I had tried harder when I was in my twenties.......... life's regrets . Come back and let us know how your doing
