I am nearly 62 years old. When I was approx. 55, I viewed a recent photo of myself and was so disgusted.
So, I bought a treadmill. The salesperson that sold me the treadmill laughed and said it would soon be a place to hang clothes! Not so, I am on my third treadmill and I run outside when weather permits.
I began to walk on the treadmill and I promise that it was not long before that walk seemed so slow. You would be shocked at what you can do. It was not long at all before I was running. And, I am still running.
Let's face it. Diets are great while you limit what you eat. BUT, as soon as you go off of those diets, the pounds pile back onto the body! Do not get me wrong. I am all for dieting.
BUT, the key is exercise. When you exercise, your body begins a transformation that it incredible. It is absolutely true that you begin to have more energy. And, exercise becomes very additive.
I only run between 28-30 miles per week. However, I can promise you that the running allows me to lose weight (or at least keep weight off) and I can enjoy a variety of foods. Yes, I do take phentermine (when available).
I just encourage everyone to try walking. I PROMISE you that once you begin to do so, you will consider jogging, then running. Even if you just want to walk, you will be absolutely amazed at how much trimmer you will become and how much better you will feel.
Of course, all of the above is based on my personal experience. But, again, I am not a young chick.
And, another HUGE benefit is the fact that even your skin, everything will improve. You will look MUCH younger. Most people think I am in my late 40's, early 50's.
Wishing all of you well.
