    I've got to say, this article really does inspire. My favorite - make your workout a "playout". And it's easier with some great music to play along to! - 11/28/2008 2:29:20 PM

  • I really loved this article. We have to stop comparing our NOW body to back then. If I think about my THEN body, I wanted to lose weight at that time. I'm pretty happy with the results I am getting in inches (down 1 1/2 sizes) but not too much on the scale. - 10/30/2008 12:26:00 PM
  • I think the piece of advice that I want to take with me from reading this article is just to start slowly. I get excited and ambitious when I first start an exercise program, and end up getting burnt-out and I just stop. If I ease into it, I may have a greater chance at success. - 10/1/2008 10:23:05 PM
  • This really helps me out. I have a type A personality, so balance is always the key for me. I love the comment about how many loads of laundry, etc., you've done. It's a great reminder of everything we already do, and that what we're asking of ourselves is a small part in the big picture, and that we deserve it!! - 8/24/2008 11:40:00 PM
