This particular person moved here 3 years ago from the midwest and is one of the few heavy people here. I always noticed her limping - her knees were bad and so was her hip. I knew the weight was taking a toll on her joints.
Today after golf I asked her if she was slimming down. She said she decided it was enough, has been working with a trainer and has lost over 40 pounds - so far. Thank you God!
I told her I didn't care what she looked like, but was concerned about her health. Of course she has already cut her blood pressure medication in half, her joints are improving and she looks ten years younger! Fitness is not for looks, it is for health
