I discovered the original FIRM VHS tape in 1988 not too many years after it was produced)...and have used MANY of them since! For decades, I was a DAILY exerciser (running/FIRM/biking/dancing)...even after having my baby and, although NOT naturally slim, I stayed in good shape and at an optimal weight without much effort since I only craved healthy food with all that exercise. Unfortunately, over the last four or five years, perimenopause, stress from a new job and my preteen's activities took over my life and for the first time since I was 14, I no longer made daily exercise a given! I also began to "reward" myself with "treats" after a long hard day! Weight gain, trouble sleeping, losing my zest and medical implications followed. A doctor visit that suggested I was heading to type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure meds shocked me into action and I found SPARKPEOPLE! After only about two weeks of being back to my former (good) ways, and I am already seeing results! I have found my way back to my FIRM tapes and use them along with ZUMBA classes at the YMCA! Thanks for all the wonderful resources on this website!
