This is part of our ongoing series called “Of course you can do it!”
No matter what your lifestyle goal, it probably doesn’t include being overweight or out of shape. This is a struggle very near and dear to me, and I was amazed and inspired on my last visit to mom’s to see how great she looked after a 60-pound weight loss. Mom has struggled with her weight all her adult life, and she shares 3 tips in this video that finally pushed her from wanting to lose weight to actually doing it.

A big thanks to my mom, Connie Gray, for being so agreeable to a 10 p.m. interview after a long day of activity. My apologies for the bad angle on the camera – I forgot the tripod. Done is better than perfect, right?
