If you don't know Doc Mike Evans and his visual whiteboard lectures on Youtube, you are missing out! They make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and determined to do better for myself and thus, in turn, others. And so entertaining! He's got... Read more

I'm still just maintaining my weight right now instead of losing it but I hit a big milestone (for me) today! I was able to run for a mile nonstop. I don't think I've been able to do that since grade school! I always thought I hated jogging (I a... Read more
