I have 120 pounds to lose. I am 43 and ready to make a new change in my life. Its been a rough few years, newly divorced and ready to take care of myself. Is there anyone out there in the same boat?

    Hi Laura,
    My little piece of advice to offer you is to take it one day at a time. Pretty simple but it really helps to achieve your end goal by focusing on the day and task at hand then pretty soon, days turn to weeks, then months and soon enough you’ll find that you can’t not exercise! 😊
    Stay the course 💪🏻
