I am a 44 year old mother of 5. You can probably imagine why it is hard for me to loose weight. I am determined to loose at least 65 lbs. I was never what you would call a small person but my average before kids was about 136lbs. I now would be happy with 145. I am working hard on changing my eating habits and exercising more. "Too many people miss the silver lining because they are expecting gold." Maurice Setter "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." Ralph Waldo Emerson Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size But when I start to tell them, They think I'm telling lies. I say, It's in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me." From Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou

    Thanks for your comment. That's amazing that you do Zumba 3x a week. I did the one time and I think I'm still recovering. LOL!

    I'm glad you are sticking with it though. This has been the most amazing last 14 months of my life. I feel so much stronger and healthier. I have days that I would love to throw in the towel, but then I realize I don't ever want to go backwards again!

    have a great rest of the week!
