The first fashion tip I have is to get into shape. Toned muscle looks way better than fat. You look healthy and clothes look and fit better on you. I am in the same boat. I have a little gut and need to put on some muscle and tone up. I need to loose about 10 to 15 pounds of fat and gain about 25 to 25 pounds of muscle. So lets all commit to it. Yes it is hard to get started, but if you make something you just do it will be a lot easier.
