E Success rate can Best be de ribbed As abjectly miserable. We re talking Here about going r the Gold in terms of physical edit zoning. Obviously if the lyrical conditioning starts to me then the losing weight and All at other Good stuff is bound to Fol in. I also know from past expert be that once you Start exercising Gorou sly and regularly the Appe a is naturally curbed and you Art carrying around a More Posi re self image the combination of Ese two factors virtually ensures tier dietary habits and weight skill unlimited i by l Wes a Skillings 7f a loss.

In the month and a half since the inception of this Experiment in masochism i feel there have been strides made both literally and figuratively. The Muscles Are tighter the wind is better and i feel better about myself because in be set a goal and in a still sticking with it. The Long Road toward physical fitness has been painful frustrating exhausting and humbling but in be crashed through the Barrier and the glow of accomplishment can be very uplifting. That a the Good part. The bad part is in a still in worse shape than most people a even lots of people who be never had to do things like jumping jacks and jogging and though there has been weight loss it has been slight and far from noticeable. Maybe its not in the cards from me to be slim and trim i think i can live with that As Martha Hermann once told me. A some people Are supposed to look like its easy for Martha to say that.
