I joined a running club, competing with, and matching teenagers for energy and endurance
I was sleeping great, my mood was positive, and I felt in control of myself once again.
The day to day stress that once weighed heavily on my shoulders, I could now simply brush away.
Sugar and carb cravings disappeared.
Sure, I was still eating my favorites, pizza, burgers and the like, but I felt fuller and satisfied, after eating less.
Second helpings which had become routine, no longer existed.
My skin felt softer, eyes brighter, hair thicker.
As I had started running, I had noticed my joints that were creaking and painful, were once again smooth and flexible.
My face had slimmed down, jowls completely gone.
My belly which once spilled over my waist was now back to the flat shape of my teenage years.
The shirts that I used to wear over my trousers to disguise my belly, now replaced with slim fits tucked into my belt to show off my new slim physique.
