Welcome Anita! Just know that you can do it. It will not be easy, but that's why you have support. We are all on the same journey. Small changes, have the best results. I also do Leslie Sansone walk away the pounds and it does work. I've also invested in Zumba Dvd's at home. My 2 yr. old son and husband dance along with me. Of course, they do their version.
Everyday when I walk in the house and sit down, my son grabs my hand and says "get up Mommy"...it's become a ritual in our home.
Just let me know if I can be of any help to you!

Hi Anita! What a small world! It's nice to meet people who actually know the Dublin area. I have a friend who graduated from Ohio Wesleyan in 2001. Thanks a lot for recommending Leslie Sansone walking program! I will get it either today or tomorrow. I would love to get my husband who is morbidly obese and my 8 year old son to lose weight by the program also. My 5 year old is skinny and built and loves to call me fat (only me) and it hurts. I have an anxiety issue that's been medicated for almost 6 years and losing this weight will make me feel more confident. Thanks again and best of luck to you!

Hello Amber, I actually went to school at Ohio Wesleyan, and The Methodist Theological School of Ohio in Delaware, I worked as a night auditor at the Marriott in Dublin off of 270 so I am so familiar with your area. I live in Nevada now and have been struggling to lose weight myself. I found a walking system Leslie Sansone that is great and its easy to do at home until you feel the gym is the place for you. I do 4-5 miles 5-6 times a week and the weight really starting to come off. I have lost almost 10 inches off my waist and feel amazing just from the walking tapes. You can find them online or at sam's club, walmart just about anywhere and they are 8-9 bucks, you can do it with the kids!!!!!! Anita

Hi everyone! My name is Amber Gregory. I live in Dublin, Ohio which is not too far from the state capital of Columbus. I am a 33 year old stay at home mom to my two sons Zion and Zackai. My husband works for the corporate office of Bob Evans Restaurants as a manager of recruitment of executives and college relations. I am at this point the heaviest I have ever been in my life which isn't good at all. I now have high blood pressure and low self esteem since I've gained about 80lbs since my 5 year old was born. I want to be healthy and proud of myself again and have the courage to go to the gym that my hubby's paying a lot for each month. I look forward to meeting everyone and getting this weight off for good. Take care!
