It's the New Year and if you are trying toget inspired to look like a new you maybe this will help.  "It feelsgood.  It makes you feel good seeing yourself change and seeing yourselfbecome the person you want to be makes life a lot happier", explains VeronicaDavila.  The Houston mother of two is featured in the 2014 Fit Momcalendar but she says she hasn't always been in shape.  She says shedropped 15 pounds, just like that, after she started lifting weights at home atleast five days a week.

 

Why did she start working out?  "Mykids.  It got to the point where I was really sluggish all the time and Icouldn't keep up.  I decided to change my diet and start working out andit's made a huge difference" says Davila.

 

The Fit Mom calendar features 25 women andsome even show off their "mommy marks", their stretch marks.  "Ido have some so I understand but you can still look good whether you have thosemarks or not".  The calendar is supposed to encourage women to be healthyand to become fit which doesn't mean becoming flawless. 

 

Davila keeps her weights right there in herfamily room and when the kids take a nap she grabs them, turns on a littlemusic and cranks out a daily workout.  "Just because you're a mom doesn'tmean you can't look good," smiles Davila.

 

Maria Kang, mother of three, is actually themom behind the calendar.  She's catching a lot of criticism for her mottowhich is 'What's your excuse?'.  Kang says after suffering an eatingdisorder she got healthy and is simply urging other women to do the same. Davila says she's not insulted by Kang but encouraged.
