Her Baby-Body Blues: "I was dying to get back to exercising, but with work and taking care of my daughter, going to the gym seemed impossible."
Amazing Results: Abby lost 10 pounds, 3 inches around her waist, .5 inches off her thighs, and 1.5 inches off her hips. "I can easily fasten a pair of pants that didn't come close to buttoning before."
What She Loved About the Workout: "I could do it late at night when my daughter was asleep. But most important, it helped me feel fitter and happier."
