I have been working out 5 days of cardio and 3 days of lifting. Mostly at the gym but I do Jackie's 20 min workouts and atleast once a week I do one of her videos. I've read her book and I'm eating between 1200-1500 calories. I do take advantage of the cheat days but I still try to make good choices and eat within my portion size. I'm happy to say I've lost 11 but wish it was more. Being in my 40's and trying to lose the weight has been very difficult. I have 3 small children and as all mom's know working out usually takes a back seat. I have changed all of that realizing that I have to set an example for my kids to be healthy. My goal is to lose 15 more lbs. I wont lie it is a struggle. I'm killing myself at the gym and a new body part is sore every week! I do feel better and I know I'm stronger but when I do Jackie's workout I often wonder if I'll get through it. I'm so proud when I do:) I think of Mandy when I cry at a workout. Atleast I'm not the only one crying. LOL Thank you for inspiring me and I'll be sure to write again when I've hit my goal. You all rock!
