I am my own best
testimonial. In May of 2007 I was 125 lbs. By the end of the year, due
to lack of exercise and far too much dietary indulging, I was 160 lbs.
Yikes! I spent almost a year in this condition, until I decided that
fat-and-happy I was not. (Just fat!) By May of 2009 I was back to
125. In the past few years, my weight will fluctuate a few pounds below
that and a few above. I have re-embraced being physically active. I still eat
and drink, but I
incorporate my own 80/20 rule: 80% of what I eat is good for me, 20%,
not so much.
If this old girl (45 years old) can lose weight and stay in shape, then you can too. Let me help you!
