TIP FOR THE DAY - Not Weight....Fitness
My doctor, nurse,herbalist wife has stayed trim and fit all her life. The rest of us usually have to work at it.
Nothing happens until you make it start to happen....
At my original 205 and 5'10" my problem was not so much a weight problem as a fitness problem.
