Let me first say that getting in shape is tough work at any age, but after 40 mental is just as important as physical! I know of where I speak because since just before Thanksgiving I have been on a quest to get my groove back and that has included losing weight! I have been very successful in this endeavor so far, but the closer I get to my goal , the harder it is mentally. Well today I saw something that gave me a renewed hope that is helping me kick it into high gear and push to the finish line...the cover of this weeks people magazine!! If you have not yet seen it I have posted it here...Valerie Bertinelli...soon to be 49...in a bikini!! I think it is just fantastic!! I soon will be posting my before and after pictures for you...not sure about a bikini...yet!!
