Okay well thank you to every body for your opinions :-) Especially thanks Heather!! It is a good suggestion, but I think I want to try and do something a little bit crazy. If I get to February, I'll be doing better than I've ever done before. Abds are just the pits for me! I've kept off the worst of the weight. I've done some running. I've done a couple of swims. I've got that last impossible 10-20 lbs and the whole impossible muffin top/flabby ab thing going on. We'll see...maybe I can finally knock off some more goals this year!!
