I was a skinny kid and a skinny 20 year old. My husband and I joke because we say, on our honeymoon, our hips were knocking together :). Later, I gave birth to 4 kids and with each kid, I gained an extra 10 lbs. There's 40 of the weight and then. The age of 40 hit and just looking at food helped put the extra 18 on. I'm very excited to get a great tool to help me lose this excess weight and keep it off.
