WAY TO GO!!!!! Keep your eye on the prize and you will never be sorry you made an investment in yourself.
I have lost 55 pounds in the last year. I went to a nutritionist who kept me on track, but the best investment I have ever made in my life is 6 months with a personal trainer. I go 3 days a week, and it has totally changed my life.
I still have 20 pounds to go, and hope to have that off by March. Then I will have to make a decision about a tummy tuck. Most of my weight was in my belly and hips, so there is a lot of empty skin.
