Hi debbie,
for toning you really need to do strenthening/resistance excercises to build muscle - Pilates is a good low impact example or the good old pushups, sit ups and weights. Whatever you do will help.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

I agree with Butterfly_Dawn you may want to look at adding some resistance training to your routine. Not only can it help you to strengthen your body it is also good for improving bone density which us gals need to be aware of.
