    My name is Jaime and I live in Jacksonville, Florida.

    My biggest cheat with food is chocolate - anything with chocolate...ugh!

    One thing holding me back from being in my TOP shape is time. I am teacher and during the school year I spend 60+ hours per week doing school related things. I know it's not an excuse, but I am so tired by the end of the day that I am ready to collapse on the couch. Good thing I start a new teaching job mid-January that has a later start time, and I have a 30 min less commute. So, hoping to get exercise in before work!

    I really enjoy yoga, it's a good overall exercise and it helps to rebalance me in my mind and my body.

    I'd love to really get into some light lifting this year to help me to develop and tone the muscles.

    My biggest trouble spot is my hips/thighs. I seem to build lots of muscle there when I do lose the weight, so they always seem to be big :(

    I love my shoulders, no matter how much I slack they always seem to be toned and developed.

    My biggest health goal of 2013 is to tone and define my body and become a healthier version of myself.

    Hi, my name is Sara :)
    I live in Southern California.
    My food vices/ cheats are ice cream/ frozen yogurt and the occasional chocolate or a pastry roll.
    I think that dedication and more knowledge of different exercises holds me back from my top shape.
    My favorite exercise-s... the elliptical, the stairs, weight lifting and hiking ;)
    This year I would like to try yoga and maybe crossfit.
    My biggest trouble spots would be lower abdominals and butt. (or lack)
    I am most proud of my arms. :D
    In 2013 I am going to participate in 2 5ks and I am determined to get the abs I want!
  • Hey!

    My name is Abby
    I live in Burlington, Ontario (Outside of Toronto in Canada)
    I am an emotional eater who is currently on medication that gives me CRAVINGS!
    My past and habits are holding me back from being the best I can be!
    I really enjoy Zumba, but I like a good simple walk, maybe picking up garbage. Fitness and Good Deeds
    I'm trying Yoga with my Mom this year - I bought a Wagjag
    My tummy has always been my problem! It is where ALL my fat sits
    I like my legs the most, I didn't get my mom's length, but I did get the skinny thighs (and unfortunately the skinny bum)
    My number 1 fitness goal is to get fit! I have been sick for 8 years, and used that as an excuse not to exercise or treat myself good.
    I CAN DO IT!

    My name is Terri! :)

    I live in Connecticut

    My food vices/ cheats include chocolate, frozen yogurt, and stovetop popcorn.

    I am held back from being in top shape due to a lack of motivation to push myself as hard as I know that I need to. I generally like to have a coach or trainer yelling at me to get me going, but I obviously cannot depend on that; I need to find that motivation within myself. I am also held back by lack of proper workout techniques.

    My favorite exercise is swimming and weight training.

    I would love to try kickboxing and incorporate more calisthenics.

    I generally love my core the most (my abs). I have usually been able to maintain a generally strong abdominal area...but a lot of the rest of my body has lost muscle tone. When I am fully toned (as I have been there before) I really like my butt/back/arms. My legs are my biggest problem area as they are always covered in even the finest of squishy fat layers, lol.

    My #1 fitness/health goal in 2013 is to feel more energized for school, and to tone up my legs and butt again. Also...I want to eat incredibly healthy (no more soda and no more crazy amounts of sugar, lol.)
