My sister lost 60 lbs in the last year; she weighs 190lbs now. The last time I saw her, she weighed 20 lbs LESS than me and yet we wear the same size (US sz14). She's also and inch taller than me but otherwise we are built the same. I've been a life long exerciser and she was/is less so. I am DENSE - ha, in a good way! At 190lbs, I fit into a US sz 12 nicely (my goal for 10/1/14).

I have cut back on my exercising to two days a week and feel good. It is just hard to get out of the house with three kids fed and changed in time to make my exercise class at 8:45am. I hope to be down to the 150's by the end of August at 161 right now
