Name: Bonita
Age: 70
Location: South Carolina
Activity: Rowing, Weight Lifting

When I started exercising, I was very overweight. I felt, continuously, like I needed to sit down. I didn't have a lot of energy. But in the last month, I have more energy and strength in my arms and legs. I have more get up and go. I have a better outlook on life. I feel great about myself and have more self-confidence. I lost inches in my waist, bust, and buttocks. When I look in a mirror, I like what I see. I am seventy years old, I am very proud of myself. I will continue working out for as long as I'm able.
