A great way to start losing weight is to start attending fitness classes at your gym. By attending classes such as yoga or pilates you'll be more motivated by all the people around you. The instructor dictates what the class does, so all you have to do is just follow along. To help you lose weight, cut out carbonated sweet drinks. There is an incredible amount of sugar in pop. This sugar will easily turn to fat if it is not burned off, resulting in weight gain.
