Hi! My name is Melissa and I am so excited to be a part of the 7 Years Younger Program. I don't remember how it happened but this year I am turning 46 - ugh!  That's almost 50! In my head I am still in my thirties, or at least I think I am... but when I look in the mirror I don't see that younger person. I see an older, heavier, tired looking version of myself. Where did the weight come from? How did I let this happen? I like to say I haven't lost my "baby weight" yet, but my "babies" are 8 and 10 years old (2 boys) so I don't know if that excuse is OK to use anymore. I am always in sweats so it was easy for me to put the weight on without even noticing! Those 10 extra pounds I thought I gained were really 30. (I blame Spanx for not helping me to realize this!) I look at my face and see lines and I feel always tired. I feel being a stay-at-home mom is difficult. I always put myself last. My kid's and husband's needs come first. I find my days are spent thinking and doing things for them. Of course I can find every excuse in the book NOT to go to the gym. I pass my gym several times a day walking to and from my kids’ school and I just smile and wave and keep walking. The only proof I have that I even belong to the gym is seeing the amount charged to my credit card bill every month. I never cancel the membership because I always think tomorrow I will go or next Monday. Living in the city I do a lot of walking, but I find that as I get older the walking just isn't enough anymore. 

This program gave me the chance to start my life over with a full support system.
