After the loss of my brother, I have really let myself go. I hope to be able to get into shape. I turn 40 soon, and I would love to be in better shape. I know it's not practical to get to my goal weight that soon. However, I still hope to lose 50 lbs by then. It's important to keep myself on track. I do well in the beginning and then lose interest. I have to stay motivated or it will never happen.
