    You look ok to me. As for slimming, that depends on the amount of body fat you have.

    If you want to lose fat and burn calories. Do intervals. Don't feel like quoting your other post, but yes, intervals "trick" your body. BUT, if you want to tone your muscles along with losing fat, do interval training with weight training.

    In interval training, your heart pumps faster because it is not used to the faster speed but your heart also works a little bit more to get back to your normal heartbeat. So even hours after you stop your interval training, your body still expends quite a bit of calories. Because of this, lots of runners have lower (some of them VERY low) blood pressure. Interval training can involve anything you find "fun" to do, running, cycling, etc, as long as you can go your normal speed one moment and speed up considerably the next. It can be intense as long as you are willing to expend a "good" amount of energy when running the upper interval speed (say 60-90% speed for 30 seconds.) You can spend 30 every-other-day doing interval training and start seeing results in weeks

    There are all these other extra benefits that interval training has on your body too, like lowing blood pressure and increasing your running speed.

    Interesting enough, I was researching intervals for my own benefit and found that intervals lowered blood pressure faster while continuous runners increased HDL the best.

    Virtually none, given that picture. You look good. The posture/pose makes it hard to tell though, but absolutely no sign of needing it.

    The only exception would be if you have good muscle definition under the normal level of fat. If so, then you might as well cut the fat to highlight the awesomeness under it... but realistically, unless you are constantly working out, you are already in the top percentages of weight-looks scales. There would be only marginal gains in attractiveness in direct weight loss here.

    An hour at your therapist will make you 1000x more attractive than an hour at the gym. Seriously.

    I don't think I'm really out of shape enough to need a physical therapist. I can still move. Maybe a personal trainer, but not a physical therapist.

    Speak for yourself! A little bit of a gut for squeezing can actually be quite nice.

    I believe @Randomnity is talking about a therapist as in psychologist or counselor, that it might be a self-esteem or self-image issue rather than anything to do with your body.

    Anyway strength and aerobic training are good for health for anybody, so if that's something you're interested in, go for it. But I wouldn't say you need to lose weight. Since there has been confusion in the past, I am not a dude.

    If every woman was like you, my life would be a lot easier, as it's easier for me to have a gut than to not have one, and I have to work to keep it off. I think I you.
