Why are you participating in the Make Yourself a Priority in 2007 Challenge?

Christy: to make my son proud of his mom (he is 19 months old). I want him to grow up eating healthy foods and exercising so he doesn't go through what I went through as a fat kid/fat teen.

Cory: to become a better me. I want to be healthy for when I am eventually a mother. I want to learn discipline because I don't have very much. I want to become positive in mind and spirit. And, if that's too corny for you, I want to not cringe when I see myself in a photo.

Debbie: So in the future I can be a fit and healthy wife and mother.

Galen: to be healthy for my family, so that my girls have an active dad who doesn't have to stop everynow and then to catch his breath. And to look good for my wife.
