Thank You!

Here's the outfit from sweet Raphael at BodyWorks - thank you!

So cute on her!

My Before & After

April 19th (almost 3 weeks after baby). I'm in jeans, but they were my 'big girl' jeans. You can tell I'm pretty weighty in the middle.

Sept 24th (almost 6 months after baby) I love my new pants!

I'm almost to my original weight before having Brooke. It's taken me a while just to get here, but I'm on my way - at least I can see the light now!

The 'Turbo 10-day Slim Down Challenge' helped me a lot to kick-start it. Doing some workout - even if it wasn't at the gym - kept the calorie-burning going. I'm going to try P90X now to see if that will get me my next results. More to come...

Even Celebs do P90X from BeachBody!

This is Roselyn Sanchez - she is on "Without a Trace" as a sultry sleuth.

This is what she says: "My hips. My legs. My stomach used to be really flat, but now I have to be careful with what I eat." She keeps in shape with P90X, a 90-day workout plan that has 12 DVDs designed to target a different area of the body. "I swear by it," says Sanchez, who's been doing the program every morning for six months. "Every girl needs to give it a try. It will change your body!"

(As Seen on
You might know Jennie Garth from the show "90210". She toned up for her comeback role on the NEW 90210 by working out five days a week with husband (actor Peter Facinelli) to trainer Tony Horton's P90X DVDs. "Every day is different," she says. "One day is really hard yoga. Then arms and shoulders, legs, then karate. His program is made to confuse the muscles so you don't plateau. I feel better now than I ever have."
