I feel absolutely fabulous!

I walk with ease and a spring in my step, I can cross my legs (I know this is silly, but not if you’ve never been able to), a smile is always on my face, I go to the gym three days per week, I swim three days per week. I now can shop in the same departments as my daughters. I now gladly get rid of clothes that are getting too big, without the fear of gaining weight back, as in the past.
