Starting a regular exercise program like Curves is a great plan to becoming more active. Another step is to challenge yourself to see how much -creative- exercise you can do. When you go to the mall, challenge yourself to find the farthest parking spot from the door. Instead of taking the elevator, take the steps and count them. At lunch, instead of sitting and eating can you eat a sandwich while you walk? Instead of watching TV with your spouse can you go bowling one night? Coming up with fun ways to move can be exciting and will make a big difference in your mood and your middle.
