    Thanks so much and I definitely feel your pain. One thing that has helped me is continuing to set goals that challenge me physically (i..e, Marathon, 100 Pushup Challenge, P90x, etc.). I'm very vocal on FB and post pics there all the time, so it also keeps me accountable as people start seeing you as a role model and I want to be a good example to others as well as good to myself. You're awesome and I know you can find the balance you're striving for!!! - Tia
