i'm 38, 5'2" and i've was 115lbs all my adult life, then all in the same year (2008) I lost my mom (+10 lbs), lost my dad (+10 lbs), quit smoking (+10 lbs) and lost my job of 10 years (+10 lbs), an extra +5lbs got thrown in there for good measure, all while the wonderful perk of ones metabolism crossing over from 20's to 30's...

Yes 45 lbs gained in less than a year, and it stayed.

Enough is enough!!! It's time to DO something and get back to my fabulous fierce self!!!

    Thanks for the support on my Urban Active blog! I actually went yesterday and had a lot of fun! And yes, the cute trainer guy talked me into getting a membership....:) , which is probably dumb because I rollerblade with my boyfriend all summer long and don't really need a gym membership until the winter. But what do I do when the cute guy is hassling me to join the gym?? haha I can't wait to take some of the classes! Especially Spinning and Turbokick. What exactly is Zumba anyway? I also like the movie theater room where you can work out (hide) in the dark while watching a movie. Super cool! :D Have a great day!! emoticon

    A big emoticon to SP and the Survivor Fans team! I also started watching the show in Season 2-Australian Outback-I have 2 friends who live near Melbourne, and I wanted to see their country. Little did I think that I'd get totally hooked on the show!! LOVE IT!! This season was great--so nice to see some old familiar faces!

    I can empathize with the whole major life crisis thing you described. It's easy to pack on the pounds when it seems that your whole world is crumbling around you. But--congrats on quitting smoking--I quit just over a year ago, too!

    Best of luck with your goals--SP is a great place to hang out and learn, and make friends, too!!

    Have a great weekend--Jackie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
