I'm exited about losing the 25 lbs that I have put on over the past 10 years. I had always been in pretty decent shape until I had children.

I realize that I have developed bad habits that have led me to the point that I am at right now. And that there is no quick fix! I want to stop the cycle NOW, and reverse it.

You left such a nice comment on my page last month and I was super rude not to come say thank you. It really put a smile on my face and well, I'm just so sorry I didn't say thank you in a timely manner. I hope that you are doing well and are finding great success in reaching your goals. Have a great weekend!
