Very Happy I just lost everyone I had trying to post the 1st time. Crying or Very sad

To make this short again since this is the 2nd time I've attempted this post.

Because of me joining RealAge for a monetary point credit I have a new attitude. I would have never taken the RealAge test if it were not for that mometary incentive but am so glad I did. I feel blessed that one thing lead to another and now I am taking positive changes in my diet and will get to the exercise also. I haven't totally did an about face yet. RealAge helped me see my destructive way of eating and lack of exercise and what it was doing to me. So far I have done rather well since yesterday. I ate breakfast this morning which I use to always skip. Yesterday I ate more nutritionally. It doesn't really take much to do. I really feel blessed today.

Good for you, Barb. Eating a healthy diet really isn't too difficult. You'll feel lots better. I've never heard anything about RealAge, but it sounds like a good program. Stick with it.

Thank you Kevin and Jo.

Jo, RealAge gets a lot of facts to determine your real age health wise and not birth wise. It goes by how you eat and health issues like smoking down to how and what you drive. It doesn't take long and it rather interesting.

Congrats Barbara - that's taking control - and trying to make better choices - it all makes a difference! I've not taken the "Real Age" test - but I will!

Very Happy Thank you everyone.

Today I kept up my new leaf by eating better. I patted dry my hamburger to get the grease out before I ate it. Haven't had my banana yet but everyting else is in order. I did the exercise that I'm about able to do and will increase that gradually.

Very Happy Thank you Patty and Diane.

I do feel so much better. It seems I've started sleeping better and feel better emotionally. My back and legs hurt tonight though from walking and dancing. I've had a half of a banana today so far even though I hate banannas. I need the potassium though.

Barbara,

I have not taken the realage test but it is wonderful to hear that it has helped you to take control and make choices to help you feel better and live better!

Little things can make a big difference.
