CAROL Being overweight most of my life caused painful arthritis. My turning point came attending Florida retreats and joining a support group. I quickly adapted to the new lifestyle but hardly exercised. It was when I began yoga lessons that power walking tempted me. It caused joint pain until arthritic symptoms subsided. My energy increased when wheat and dairy were eliminated, and juicing increased. At this point, I became a serious power walker. I lost 15 pounds the first month on the protocol and felt terrific. Doing support group homework kept me committed to future goals. I moved to a new home, which is uncluttered, and was satisfied to disassociate with the people I felt were obnoxious. I lost 75 pounds. I now belong to a rowing team and race walk with the Gary Null Running and Walking Club.
