  1. I too am a senior born in 1936. Married for 67 years. After helping my husband fight cancer for 15 years, I thought that I would just take care of myself – like sleeping late, eating all the stuff that I liked, sitting and watching tv, reading, etc. All of a sudden I was having pain in my knees and in my back. After going to doctors, physical therapy, and a diagnosis of high blood pressure, nothing changed.

    Now after one month of eating the right food, losing weight, and starting to go to the gym with advice from a trainer, I feel so much better and move around a whole lot more. It works.

    Ernestine, I thank the Lord for your testimony of good health and exercise.

  2. Mrs. Ernestine Shepard is definitely an inspiration to me. I am 57 and struggling to lose 25 pounds. I also have a desire in my mind to be a fitness model…but have never pursued it.
