I saw the Arthur video, Eric Video and a few others and was totally amazed! I was already well on my way to a better fit life before seeing the videos but didn't look further into it until I started having major issues with my knees. I have Stage 4 osteoarthritis (35 years old and ave the knees of a 70 ear old) in my knees. After years of volleyball and softball (I was a catcher) and then gaining 100+ pounds on top of all that, my knees were destroyed. I had bilateral knee scopes to fix several meniscus tears and scrape the arthritis from the soft tissue and I needed a program that was less impact but would still help me get fit and buff. After the suggestion of my Ortho Dr., seeing those videos, I decided to purchase DDP Yoga.
I started by changing the old me into the new me buy portioning my food (just like the DDP food guide) using containers and measuring out my food. I did 30 minutes of exercise in my workout room, at home, 6 days a week. I stayed focused and repeated in my head: pick your hard, losing weight is a journey, change your mind, change your body, be better than your excuses. I had accountability partners, especially my best friend, Kathy, who also took the journey with me. She lost 85 pounds and I lost 117 pounds in 1 year. Having that "community" to cheer you on is priceless! It's not easy but if you put in the time, you will reap the rewards of success.
