Finding so many resources I can access from home; learning to set small achievable goals and measurable goals, support from great teams ; exercises that start you out as slowly as you need to start with super encouragement from the SP coaches; wonderful information and recipes for healthful food choices are only some of the most important benefits I have discovered.
