try taking your grandchild(ren) to Busch Gardens - and keeping up with him/her/them! THAT has motivated me to really try and get rid of this "holding me down/back" weight once and for all! I just never thought I would be a fat/unhealthy/out of shape grandparent!!

When I need to clean the house (ugh) I put on my headphones, put on a workout station on Pandora, and dance while I clean. My kids think I am crazy but it makes cleaning much more fun and I get some cardio in while I do it, WIN WIN!!
When I find that I need new clothes I always think about the cost. Ugh...What I like is SO expensive so a few things I do is go to places like Marshal's or TJ Maxx where I can get named brand items very cheap. If that doesn't work I go online and see what items at my favorite store is on clearance sale. That ends up saving me quite a bit of money.
I enjoy working out and love the way I feel when I eat right and am loosing weight. However once people start to notice - I start binge eating again and fall off my workout routine - ugh. I think I am afraid of being seen - when your over weight you become invisible - in CA anyway. I found comfort in being invisible - I need to get over it! HELP
