I LOVED reading about this kid. I'm sure she is going to be an up and coming kid to keep our eyes on. Wonder what she will do in the future?

And while I'm at it Jaime Oliver. Too bad it took a Brit to bring so much attention to our horrible school lunch program.

I totally agree with Dara Torres. She had a picture in a milk add in a magazine the other day and I just could not believe how toned she was.

My biggest inspiration is my daughter. When I lost 55lbs. before, she was so proud of me. She told everyone who would listen about my weight loss. I don't think that she's disappointed in me that I put some weight back on, but I will never forget the way it made me feel to see that pride in her eyes, and it's just one more reason for me to get back on track and lose the weight for good this time!

my co-workers. we all keep each other on track and push each other. We motivate each other to go to the gym when we don't want to and make good food choices.

The trainers also rock because they push us to do better and go to the next level.

Mine is Dara Torres, because she was able to make a Comeback at the age of 40, returning to Olympic fitness after having children.

I think I also relate to her because when I was a kid, I was a competitive swimmer and loved it. On my Long Term List of Goals, #1 to join a Master's Swim Team.

Currently, I just FLOAT due to fat ratio. emoticon

She PROVES it is NEVER TOO LATE!!! GO DARA!!

Miz Fit. She blogs at mizfitonline.com/ and has a podcast called Two Fit Chicks and a Microphone. She's been "clean eating" for 17 years and just ran her first half marathon in a tutu. She's always herself and does what she likes (weightlifting) even when it isn't what's cool or trendy.
