Let me first say that getting in shape is tough work at any age, but after 40 mental is just as important as physical!Â 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!Â I have been very successful in this endeavor so far, but the closer I get to my goal , the harder it is mentally.Â 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 ofÂ this weeks people magazine!!Â If you have not yet seen it I have posted it here...Valerie Bertinelli...soon to be 49...in a bikini!! Â I think it is just fantastic!!Â I soon will be posting my before and after pictures for you...not sure about a bikini...yet!!
