    Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments

    A swing can be a reality check.

    My "Aha" moment was when at only 33, I couldn't swing at the park with my kids because I couldnt sit in the swings. Its life changing. You can either deal with it or do something about it. I chose to change my life. I started a blog ( and basically documented my life for the past 2 years. I have lost 50lbs and I have run 6 half marathons. I am ready for what 2013 brings. Oh and I think I swing more than my kids do;)
