More than half the women in America that are 18 or older are overweight, which puts them at increased risk of developing heart disease.
If that includes you, take action by losing the weight through healthy eating and exercise. And when the pounds drop off, reward yourself (and show off that newly trim figure) with a sexy pair of skinny jeans.
Why are we promoting a happy heart? It's on trend of course! This month, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) will host its annual star-studded Red Dress Collection runway show during New York Fashion Week. The Heart Truth initiative, as it is known, aims to inform women about the risk of heart disease.
