By the time I graduated, I did not like how I felt or how my clothes fit, and was determined to lose the weight I had gained. That's when I started going to Ashtanga yoga classes three times a week. I was becoming stronger, but not really losing weight. While complaining to a good friend, she said, "In order to lose weight, you need to up your cardio." That was the best advice ever. I started a regular running routine, and slowly but surely, the pounds began to melt off. I'm forever grateful for that friend's advice because now I'm at a much healthier weight, my heart and muscles feel strong, and I'm confident about my body. So tell me, what's the best health or fitness advice you've ever received?
