Congratulations Ann and Ken! Thatís a terrific accomplishment.

My class reunion is coming up and my best friend emails me and says ìLetís go!î I email her back and say ìnot unless I lose 20 pounds!î She emails me back to say ìWho cares how much you weigh, weíre all a bunch of grandmothers anyway!î I email her back and say, ìWait a minute, I ainít no grandmother!î <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

So I took out a 6 month membership at our fitness center and hired a personal trainer (well, my friendís son who had just graduated from college in fitness training) to get this overweight, out-of-shape body back into shape. I go to the gym 5 nights a week for a 40-minute work out. So far, Iíve lost close to 10 pounds and have taken an inch off my thighs and hips. I can also see a difference in my body tone. Even though Iíll never be Miss Hot Bod (too funny to even imagine <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> ), I do feel better about myself.

Fast foods are absolutely off limits, and what I do eat is grilled on George Foremanís lean mean fat reducing grilling machine. My one big weakness is chocolate. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

Wish me luck. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
