What made you decide Body Back was right for you? "I really wanted to get back into shape because I gained 50 lbs. with him...I remember seeing it on the (web) page. At the time, I didn't think I could do it because I was worried I'd be the heaviest person in the class or the slowest person. Missy and Carol encouraged me to try it out and I could keep up. So I said 'You know, I need to do this for myself!'"
What is something people wouldn't know about you? "That I ended up marrying a guy I dated in high school. 13 years later we reconnected! He called me out of no where and now we're married!"
