Rachel, You are a strong woman, and though I don't know you, you inspire me. To beat cancer three times makes you AWESOME! Keep fighting!

My mom has beaten breast cancer twice! I hope to never have to go through that. But, if I do, I want to be a fighter like her, and like you!

All the best!

Hi all. My name is Kim. Here are 10 things about me:

1 - I'm 44 years old
2 - I have been married 26.5 years
3 - I have two children. My son is 24 and my daughter will be 22 in May.
4 - I have a grandson who just turned 2, and another grandson will be born any day... :-)
5 - I'm serious about getting healthy, lean, and toned this year.
6 - I live in Michigan, and have Osteoarthritis in one of my knees (just had shots in it hoping to avoid replacement for a while)
7 - Been doing the Body for Life program since January 23rd and LOVE IT!
8 - I have an office job - working 40+ hours per week. (sitting on my butt!)
9 - I'm 5'10" and weigh over 200
10 - My goal is to be around 150#

Okay, so there it is. I'm down 10 pounds since January 23rd. Hoping to drop another 10-15 pounds in the next 30 days. Will see... Building muscle right now, but toning well and losing my love handles. Good signs all around...

Happy Friday everyone!
KimB

1) Name is Gwen
2) I'm short...too short
3) I have three daughters
4) My newest love is my new Chihuahua, Sophie
5) I never weighed as much as I do now, including all three of my pregnancies
6) My fear is heart disease with my waist circumference being over half my actual height!!!
7) I used to be very fit and lift weights regularly...loved the leg press!
8) Currently trying to heal a rotator cuff injury and its limiting my activity
9) Same best friend for over thirty years now
10) If I could reinvent myself...I make me less fearful and more willing to take risks. :)

Be brave enough to keep fear of the unknown from letting you embrace the possibilities.

Hi Everyone, I'm 53 years of age, and have been training with weights on & off since I was 19. In the last 12 months I've had renewed motivation and inspiration and am enjoying my new found love of weight training. I've also introduced kettle bells and am using a sandbag. I'd thoroughly recommend these items to everyone - seems to have made my workouts much more interesting, and I can see the results. I'm much stronger, have lost 1 stone (very slowly I must add) and feel my energy levels soaring. Look forward to interacting with all of you.

my 10:-

1/ I'm Cath, 41 and live in Birmingham UK
2/ Mom to one 16 year old son of my own, a surrogate son of 17 (moved in with us for the weekend 2 years ago and never left), step mom to 2 girls (17 and 18) and another boy (19) and grannie to ella (8 months) who all live at home and yes life is pretty busy :D
3/ I work from home and this is my biggest downfall, no social interaction and the fridge just calls out to me...
4/ I love to lift heavy and outlift most women (and quite a few men- I love to see the surprise on peoples faces when the watch me hit the iron).
5/ I havent spoken to my family for 9 years now after a major betrayal by someone close to me - somethings just cannot be forgiven
6/ I'm a secret snacker, when I'm in the car or in the house alone. I hide the evidence of my blow outs (guilty conscience? who knows...)
7/ I want to build muscle and lose fat - hard to do at the same time I know but it is possible
8/ I'm on my own in this journey to getting fitter and living healthier. My partner says that at my age that I should have some extra pounds as thats how life is (well not for me anymore!)
9/ I'm a terrible procrastinator.
10/ Im on edge today - my son has his final exam to get his place into college (I'm more nervous than he is lol

I,m Cherie, 59 yrs, done weight training off and on for 30 yrs. Reunited with a man I knew 42 yrs ago. Love body-shaping. When I was 30, after having 3 kids back to back, I was in the best shape of my life weight training! I don,t like those big muscle women. But I do want to keep my body strong and healthy for life! Several surgeries and meds along with life issues, put the pounds on. Now, I,m losing but very slowly. Glad to be her cause I,m doing more weight training now! Hope you all have a good day! Cherie
