“I’m not quite sure what happened but I got pretty inactive. Started gaining five here, five there,
five more, five more. So at 55 years old, I’m 250 pounds and it’s ruining me. It seemed like I had
tried everything and I didn’t know what else to do. When I started the PACE program, the most I
could do was walk 45 seconds, and that was my exertion. Just plain walking for 45 seconds.
Within the first two weeks, my energy level was crazy. It was just crazy. That was really the first
thing I noticed, was how I felt. I felt just so good, so energized. With PACE Express, I lost 98
pounds of fat. I had just busted into a size 22. As of yesterday, I wear a junior size 11. I mean
I’m proud of the transformation. I’ve gone backwards, in years. I’m strong like I was … in my
teens and 20s. You know people around me my age, even younger, talk about getting old, and I, I
have to be honest. I tell them. Not me. I’m getting younger.”
