Get in Shape for Summer -- for LIFE!

Okay, okay. I know we all loved the holidays a little bit too much, and winter made it easy to make excuses about why we hadn't gotten moving in so long. But guess what? That all ends today! No more puny excuses as to why it's okay to eat the whole tub of ice cream in three days. No more couch potato-ing the weekends away. Wouldn't it be amazing to lose those last 10 to 15 pounds before summer? Is it so bad that you don't recognize yourself in photos anymore? I was there, trust me.

In June of last year, I finally said "enough!" to my weight. I bought a Jillian Michaels DVD (30 Day Shred) and got to work. I had ballooned to 219.5 pounds (!!!!), which is much higher than my usual 170s. Yeah, I'd had two kids in between now and then, but really---that's a whopping 50 pounds. FIFTY! It was time.

Yes, it was hard. Some days I wanted to just give up, skip my work out, and eat a cheeseburger and fries. But soon, working out was something I actually looked forward to. Weird, right? I loved the feeling of burning thighs and racing heart rates, because that means numbers going down on the scale. And boy, did they go down! Slowly but surely.

I ended up losing about 37 pounds with Jillian Michaels. I signed up for her website and got a personalized weight loss plan that helped me along the way. With recipes, goals, and tips, I never got bored, and I never felt like I was going it alone. Now that I'm expecting our third baby (34 weeks today! Whoa!), I've kept the knowledge in the back of my mind, knowing that while it may feel really good to eat a bowl of ice cream every night, it is not helping my body. I plan on picking up right where I left off with Jillian, and losing the rest (and then some!) after I'm cleared by my doctor. Fitness is important to me now, and I know my kids see that, too.

So here's where YOU get to make a change. Sign up for and get started on YOUR new life. It's free. Seriously. You can cancel it any time, but you wont want to, I promise. It is so worth the valuable information you get from it, and once you see the change in your physical appearance (and your self esteem!) you wont want to quit. So go for it. Make the change for YOU!

I wouldn't make this post unless I truly believed in this program. I have personally used it, and had great success. I know you can, too.
