The Key to Health Is Making Changes

As many of you already know, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis about 5 years ago. This weekend I celebrated my 46th birthday and I am and have been symptom free since that time.
As I look back, I realize alot has transpired during that time. For one, I began competitively weight lifting as a masters weight lifter and qualified for the International Pan American Games. This means I will be competing this year for Team USA in Puerto Rico at the event-- a huge honor!
I am also the leanest I have ever been---my body fat decreased to about 16.7 percent from a dismal 29.5 percent.
I continue to pay close attention to my diet-- consuming the types of food that bolster my mind and body--without having to 'diet'. And I feel great both physically and mentally. Am I extraordinary?
I don't think so.
We all have the power to change our lives and make them better, more fulfilling. As host and executive producer of local cable t.v health show 'Fitness, Health & Healing' I've been fortunate to meet other people like you and me who have stepped out of the 'box' and changed their lives in a magnificent way--first by implementing small changes in their lives then bigger ones. and finally producing a healthy world for themselves filled with love, joy and fun. The key is knowing there are options out there for all of us to choose from and then just doing it.
