I have exercised almost all my life. When I was younger I was extremely fit, but have packed on the pounds over the last decade. My doctors keep thinking they can show the result of my being now overweight through blood work, but alas, I am always in normal ranges. I took a cardiac stress test with EKG and ultrasound a few months ago, again, passed with flying colors.
I do attribute all those positive results to exercise. However, the downside is, there is less incentive to lose weight. I have to concentrate solely on how I look and feel, as opposed to a cause/effect relationship to my health. (I should also add that I eat primarily organic healthy food--I "simply" overeat.)
