    So true. All of it.
    #1-I used to come home from work, sit down in front of the TV and snack, eat and sleep. No more. Now, I rarely watch TV, don’t snack and am at the gym.
    #2 & 3-I feel younger, look better and have so much more energy. I am healthy and I am more productive. People wonder where I get all my energy.
    #4, 5, 6 & 7- I have energy to do anything I want. I now participate in Triathlons and just finished the Panther run which is running and obstacles. Loved it. My bone scan was great as well. Weights help that. My doctor is amazed that I have lost 45 pounds and gotten so fit in 18 months. I have toned a lot. I can do more all around than many people my age.
    #8, 9, & 10-I was headed for diabetes meds and blood pressure, cholesterol meds. Not now. I don’t need them. I am healthy, I have energy and I want to stay this way.
    Thanks for all your motivation. Its not easy to stay on it. I want to get off of it sometimes and I do, but I have to think about whats most important and what I want out of it.
