    I LOVE the Vitamix! I've used it every day since I got it and my smoothies are so smooth and creamy. I've been wanting one for over a year and even had one saved in my Amazon cart for a while, but I didn't have the nerve to hit purchase because they are very expensive. Anyhow, a friend of mine posted on facebook that QVC had a daily special for $399 with free shipping so I couldn't pass up on that deal. It's worth the investment, especially if you and your husband plan to use it often. It's easy to use and it takes no time to clean in the morning when you're pressed for time. I usually make enough for two servings - morning and after dinner - and the second smoothie holds well when refrigerated.

    Lately I can't seem to wake up early for AM workouts, so I've been attending evening classes. I think might aim for morning workouts again this spring.

    You're doing great Rina! Keep up the good work!

    Hello! I came across your page and it so resembles my "story".
    In your photos you have a smile on your face and THAT tells me you keep a good attitude. ...And that's all we can do.
    In 2006-7 I went from 207 to 149 lbs. using Weight Watchers and exercising on my own.
    Gained it all back again WITH interest and got up to 230 lbs. by 2010.
    Last year I took off -50 lbs. and have been holding on TIGHT EVER SINCE!
    I am closing in AGAIN on the 170s with just less than -5 lbs. to go. I say AGAIN cause I gained during the holidays.
    I take it all in stride. I got that weight off and back down to almost where I was before the holidays.
    I can't let the set backs get me down cause I now consider them PART OF THE TERRITORY for someone like me.
    Keep up your good work too. KEEP SPARKING!
