Great news - I was down 2 more pounds this week!!! It's so nice to see the progress. Today was kind of a roller coaster ride. There were periods where I had energy to get the walking in, then there were periods of hunger - then feeling... Read more

This is the exciting stuff! I've talked a bit about physical changes I've noticed. Not needing to hold the railing when going up or down the stairs anymore, more zip in my steps, higher energy levels, not feeling that on most days the exercise... Read more

Wow, got a good night's sleep last night and today I was like a ball of fire!!! The more I walked, the more energy I had. It's beyond me, but I didn't feel exhausted by the 81 min. of walking or the strength training exercises I did after that... Read more
