I want to start exercising but I don't know were or how to start. I been saying this for as long as I can remember (I'm going to start exercising and I still haven't). I'm like 105 lbs. I have some sexy curbs going on and don't want to exercise to be plain flat as the wall. I want to tone my abs and get them back in shape nice and firm like before having kids. I have a very small belly pouch that I'm dying to get rid of to feel good wen summer hits. It's not a big deal wen I'm dressed but wen I sit down it's not too pretty in my belly section, so I really need help there to show it off this summer. :D I hope to get my waist in better shape and maybe hopefully lose some inches off the waist to look leaner in that area and make my hips look maybe a bit bigger and make my medium size booty more perky and lift it up some more not flat. Finally my last concern is to get my legs in shape.
So I need help in getting an exercise routine that will work for me every other day in accomplishing all my areas of concern and need help in getting started.
Thanks in advance!

The best way to start exercising is to, well, start. Don't set dates like 'next Monday' or 'the beginning of next month'. These seem logical because they are solid starting points, but it's just delaying your progress. Start tomorrow, or better yet, today. Go for a short run just to warm up - you don't want to push yourself in the beginning because you might injure yourself.
Look around online for some effective exercises for the areas you want to improve. (Chick Advisor has a great article running this week) Remember that it should be a whole body experience. I'm not a pro so I can't go much further than providing some motivation. I know that ever since I've started working out a few years ago, I've never felt better. I often wonder why I didn't start sooner.

If you are having trouble with motivation I recommend finding an "exercise buddy" and creating a schedule. If you always exercise with someone else then you can motivate each other to show up at the gym. And if you arrange specific days and times to work out each week, you will be less likely to skip days.
Definitely follow the link that Becky posted, and use a trainer to help you establish an exercise routine that will be best suited to your own needs!
