    Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments

    My son's plea for me to lose weight


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jenpen1143 says the hardest part about getting fit was exercising because she was in pain. But she knew diet alone wouldn't help her reach her goal.
    - JacqueCNN, CNN iReport producer

    The moment that changed my life was when my six year old son asked me if I would get "skinny" so that I could play outside with him. My heart broke, and from that moment forward, I began the transformation into a healthier lifestyle for my children. I have lost 64 pounds through diet and exercise. Now, I can go outside and keep up with my 2 wonderful kiddos.
