At age 40 had a surprise baby! Surprise, here's a whole bunch of extra weight..and its not nearly as easy to take off now as when I was 30.....gained over 50 pounds with the pregnancy and lost 10. After a year, its pretty obvious the weight isn't going to come off just from nursing like after my last 2.

I'm just tired of feeling uncomfortable, and I want the physical, spiritual and psychological benefits of consistent exercise, eating healthy meals, and improved overall health back in my life! Especially since I recently ended the relationship with my daughter's "father".

Thanks for reading, and have a glorious day!
