Can You Be Fit If You're Overweight?

According to the results of a study that tracked 2600 women for 12 years, researchers found that being fit, regardless of your weight, reduced your risk of dying from heart disease, stroke, and cancer by 50%.  They found that fit women who were overweight, were better off than skinny women who never exercised.  Their findings say regular exercise improves your cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and strengthens your heart, all of which can lengthen your lifespan.  Although you may be battling your weight, regular exercise can improve your health.
