Pleas any suggestions would be great!! Thanks. I don't want to loose all that much more just tone up. I'm 5'2" and about 120 but it shows on my midsection and thighs.
Taekwondo has been doing my body wonders.
I was 120lbs when I started and in about 5 or 6 months have gained 20lbs of muscle (having class twice a week and doing a little bit of walking and situps and grocery store stocking during the week as well.) My core is tightening and thinning, my legs and arms are getting strong, and I'm getting so much more coordinated and quick. But, if you're doing harder exercise, don't forget to make sure your body gets enough food! Maybe chat with your doctor about what the ideal healthy diet for you would be. (A healthy diet will help you build muscle weight and lose extra fat.)
It sounds like you are a similar size to what I am when I don't exercise, so you probably shouldn't actually lose weight, but rather tighten muscle.
We don't use music, but I do like to dance to Spanish-style music and to classical dance music. Dancing can also be great exercise.
