I went to military processing in Mechanicsburg today, grandson Travis left for Army basic training. It was really refreshing to see those fit and trim military personnel, it almost seemed an anomaly to me to see a room full of slender people. It struck me just how overweight our society has become and we have become conditioned to that being the norm.
Thanks for all the work coordinating things over the last months. This lifestyle change has been very rewarding to me in so many ways.

I only consider this the finish of the 28 day challenge, because I plan on staying on this and adding more exercise. For me this has been great, because I have always known that I need to eat a better diet, but would usually kid myself into thinking I was OK and bad health happens to other people. Rip's plan offers a great guideline with proven results to back up what he says. Thanks for putting this together!

We each lost a few pounds in addition to what we'd lost before, but I guess what I'm most proud of is what it did to my energy and stamina.
