Oh, geez

Nothing like a little spandex to make you wanna barf, huh?  These are my official "BEFORE" pictures.  I'm looking forward to having some kickin' "AFTER" pictures to share.

Now, here is what I really want to work on: my tummy.  After 4 abdominal surgeries in 5 years, my ab muscles have been cut through a lot without having a chance to strengthen again.  It's apparent in my posture and my profile.  I have been having a lot of lower back pain, and I know it has to do with my posture and my weak abs.  I'm not going to just be focusing on my abs in exercise, though, because I know that cardio is the key to burning calories and helping the fat go away.

Ugh.  I've got a lot of work to do, and will be needing your support.  My official WW weigh in will be May 1.  Look for it, and for daily reports on points and exercise.  :)

Core training will help (think yoga and pilates). It will strenghten your back and tone your tummy.

You can do it!
