I'm a 49 yr old married, mother of 4. I've struggled with my weight since puberty and with my kids births, came extra weight. I was always, with great effort and exercise, able to lose the weight until after the birth of child #4. Being in my 40's definitely changed my ability to get rid of the unwanted pounds and the fat was just stuck to me like GLUE.

I gave up very easily on each new WOE I tried and therefore just was stuck hovering between 168 and 178 (Ugh). After returning from a family vacation and going through the snap-shots I nearly gagged. Was that old looking, blob me? It certainly could not be. I finally realized that I really did look awful.

Here I am - nearly 6 years later and still fighting my weight. I have tried everything, including hypnosis (which worked really well for about 4 months) -- and now I'm back at 176.

I keep on trying. My kids mean too much to me for me to make myself unhealthy by continuing to eat junk. Please pray for my success.
