Good for you for starting early on! I wish I had done the same.

I started lifting at a little under 200lbs and not only did it give me A LOT more energy and help my mood but I looked so much better at that weight than I had in the past (I have pictures of myself at the same weight and I know for sure I was wearing a size smaller too).

You also will be burning calories for the rest of the day after you workout. There's a reason that the biggest loser has all their contestants hitting the gym so much!

My only advice is find a routine that works for you and that you can stick with. Don't kill your self initially and ease into the workout because then you'll be more likely to stick with it. Good luck!
