Ok, well I have now decided I am not happy with my weight, and I would like to lose 10Lbs, so I can get down to 8 stone or 112lbs. I am 5'4". I know that at my current weight and height I am not overweight or anything, i just want to tone up a little. I have never done anything like this before, and I would like to gather some advice and knowledge of the time span I am looking at here! My birthday and Christmas ball are in 1 months time, how much weight do you think I would lose in 1 month? I am a pear shape, so i don't really need to do anywork up top, my arms are fine and I have no bust really, so its my hip area that is getting to me! I have a twist stepper, which I will start using, and I was wondering do i need to go to the gym to get results, or could i work out a programme at home? Also, i eat what I like at the moment, I am a vegetarian which means I do eat a lot of carbs, do you think if i cut down on these it would help my figure? I really would appreciate any advice, help as I am a total newbie to this! Any great workouts for bums and thighs would be a god send!
