    You all are awesome. Tagging for me because I REALLY need to keep the faith that I'm doing what I need to be doing despite my setbacks and frustrations.

    21 months of heavy-lifting free weights - THAT is the picture on the right-hand-side ^^^.

    ^^^ On the left-hand side is me, after 25+ YEARS as a cardio-gym rat.

    Yes, I still do SOME cardio, but my exercise-focus is on lifting heavy free weights.

    And, yes, I'm "busy" like everybody else. I am 44 years old, a professional career-woman with more than 20 full-time years invested in my profession. I am a wife, mother of 3, volunteer, but I choose to take care of myself and as I come upon nearly 2-full-years focused on weight-lifting (instead of cardio), I'm very pleased with my progress.

    Oh, and I'm 5'9" tall....for all you stats people!
    Wow, what a difference!! Amazing :)
