Wow Kag, you are an exercise demond! Good for you!
Since not everyone can jump into a 6 day a week routine, Pam you might want start with an every-other day schedule, but keep upping the instensty. Zumba is fun, but if you have been doing it for a while you might want to change things up a bit. I have a good friend that can out-step aerobics anyone because she's been doing for ages. But as soon as she tries something else like a kick-boxing routine or even yoga she's whipped.
And like Cassie recommended, log your food for a while and see where you strengths and weaknesses are. I too have never met a potato I didn't love, but I have learned to relegate them to special occasions. I still get to have them from time to time so I don't feel deprived, but they now occupy a different position in my own personal food pyramid.
Keep us posted how things are going
From one Pam to another,
