In early 2007 mom started trying to get in shape for the millionth time. She struggled with her weight her entire life and tried countless diets and Weight Watchers and plans from late-night TV infomercials, etc. I always would tell her that she simply needed to get some regular exercise, and finally she started doing that. She joined Curves and was very excited about it. She sent me this email after a phone call in which I asked her what she was doing.
