  • I believe exercising regularly, helps the attitude, and boost the belief that we really can get to a normal weight. Because when we exercise we have evidence we are doing something about our weight problem. - by ASHLEEWEBART

  • I've been wanting, after losing 40lbs or so (by eating more healthily than I've done for donkeys years and becoming something of a gym bunny) to find a new way of inspiring me when things have became a little Ground Hog Day. This sounds like something I've not really tried, but which could prove very useful. Thank you. - by CHEBBA
