As I have posted before I am trying to get into shape, I had four kids and let myself go and now I really need to lose the belly and the butt. I got the chance to work with EA sports on the EA Sports Active More workouts. I have had several false starts to the 6 week challenge but am starting it again next week. I felt though that I should post this review and maybe you all can keep me in check this time.
