So I found out that pilates alone doesn't burn fat, I need to do cardio as well. Started doing about 5 minutes of somewhat intense cardio before I eat. I hope this is sufficient. I can't go very long due to asthma.
Teddy Rosevelt had asthma and he took up every sport possible to prevent flare ups and help fight the problem. I recommend having a fast acting inhaler while you start your workout but after a month or so you should notice a difference. I battle asthma also so I must run for a few weeks ahead of starting a weightlifting program so my body can actually work long enough to build muscle.
