I am a Christian, 50 something, stay at home mom who has jumped on the fitness bandwagon with both feet! I am tired of losing 5 pounds only to regain it again. Yes, I want to wear pretty clothes that I feel good in and that make a more positive statement about myself. I can say that I am making real change in my lifestyle. It is fun, hard work and a bit scary, as the unknown always is. The spiritual part of my life has and will continue to dovetail with the physical life. Having self control is not easy, but there is a growth in it that is opening up possibilities in many areas of life.
