I noticed I was having trouble getting up and down the stairs and going on short walks and my belly was in the way of tying my shoes! That's when I decided that I needed a change. I had seen my family members do so well on this program, I gave it a shot and lost 40 pounds, from 208 down to 168, in just one summer! I feel so much better, it was like I was wearing a heavy backpack all the time and I finally took it off! Seeing other people make changes in their lives too is so rewarding, I love it!
