Live Your Most Beautiful Life
You don't know how many times I've heard women say this statement: "I really like my butt, so I'm scared about losing weight", or "I really like my breasts, and I'm afraid that I'll lose them if I work out too much." I am aware that curves are "in style" (and have been in style for a while), but many women are fooling themselves into thinking that they will lose their curves by incorporating fitness into their everyday lifestyle. If you already have a sizeable chest and/or butt, you can allow your "assets" to tighten up and look even better when you're fit.
If you would like to keep an "hourglass" shape but don't know how to start a fitness regimen to fit your personal body goals, you have plenty of resources to help you out. If you just google "hourglass workout," plenty of reliable articles and blogs pop up that explain to you the different exercising techniques as well as food regimens that can help you achieve a more toned and fit hourglass figure (for example, check out "Curves Ahead: Get Your Curves in Traffic-Stopping Shape"). You can follow recommendations from such sources, or even better, stop by your local gym and seek out a personal trainer that has experience training others on tightening up curves without building up too much muscle or losing shape. The great thing about getting a personal trainer is that they can recommend a food regimen that works well for you, and will keep on top of you and your progress as you get your body more in shape.
Being fit and curvy is a lot better than being unfit and curvy (or overweight and curvy), so make it a point to determine the best workout and food regimen to help you get back in shape. If you treat your workout regimen like it is a part-time job, you'll be surprised how quickly you can tone up, lose excess weight, and highlight the curves that you have been blessed with!
