I've struggled with my weight all my life, though I was at least almost in a healthy range until I went to college. I did WW twice, the first time losing about 30 lbs, which I gained back, then on the second try - online, I lost about 60 lbs, but then got pregnant with our first. I was all set to go, but a year later, found out we were expecting our second. It's been nearly 2.5 years since I had our little boy and I'm nearly back at the weight I was when I gave birth to him.

I have found with the little ones, it's pretty difficult for me to maintain a good schedule for workouts that lasts more than a few weeks. Something always seems to happen. I vow that I won't let it interfere anymore. It is time to stop making excuses or allowing circumstances to take my control away.

    emoticon so much for the advice! And that is exactly what I did, I went to the gym for the kickboxing class, only my second class for this, and I noticed an incredible difference from the first to the second class, the first one I was having trouble focusing on some of the moves, and this time Ty, the personal trainer, said my focus was like, razor sharp in comparison, and I had way more focus on the kicks and punches. Hmm, wonder why that could have been. emoticon I had explained to him some of the stuff that happened this last week and he told me to focus everything on how I felt about all that stuff happening, and well, that's what happened. emoticon

    M&M's Thought Of The Day:

    Fitness in is earned, not bestowed - a process, not a magic trick - an investment, not a miracle.
