Did you know our trainer Michael (or is it Mark). Had 3 knee surgeries.... talk to him for ideas!! You can do this, just might have to be done differently.

Congrats on your success. I read about the juggle of kids, work, time and you just have to do it. I am finding it hard, but reading your story gives me hope. emoticon

I have been looking for an inspirational story, someone that has overcome the obstacles that I am currently facing. Your story has given me the hope and inspiration that I have been searching for. Thank you for sharing such a private struggle with us. You look amazing, and the smiles in each one of your pictures tells the story of hard work and determination. I will be adding you as a sparkfriend so that on those days when I feel weak and ready to cave under the pressure of lifes daily obstacles I can read your story again and again!

Thank you!
