Clothes inspire Venus to stay fit

London: Venus Williams claims her form-fitting clothes force her to keep an eye on her figure, although she does enjoy treating herself on occasions.

"I wear a lot of tight dresses so I`m like, `I need to do my sit-ups.` I really like candy. Sometimes you lose track of what and how much you`ve eaten, and then you`re like, `Oh god, what have I done?`," quoted her as saying.

Williams also revealed she has lately started swimming and loves being in water.

"I started swimming. I love being in the water - and I was never was a good swimmer - but in the last week, I`ve learned to swim. I actually had a bike accident that I was really fortunate to come out of.
