Liz Sweeney is a 42-year old, married mother of two boys (Ringo, age 5 and Jake, 15). In 2009 she decided she was fed up with being fat and began the long journey to losing 120 pounds. Two years later she’d lost 75 pounds and started having visions of grandeur. Would it ever be possible she could be physically fit? Could she become the kid in gym class that climbed the rope to the top? Could she run a 10k and win in her age group? Would she ever be able to keep up in a Zumba class?

A little ambition can carry a girl a long way. Can it carry this blogger all the way to becoming…Sydney Bristow?
