there is nothing like feeling alive and alert, you must feel so happy that you have a way now. and yeah, ITA, it is not just about weight management. it is about being able to live your life and enjoy it. on that subject, a weekend swimming across seas and climbing mountains. well a minor snorkel in a bay and a climb up a 408m mountain. the way down is the most fun as it is almost vertical so real good on the core and the ankles. low impact if you dont trip over LOL there is some unreal bush there too which is low growing as it is so exposed and as it has been grazed for 150+ yrs, it is mainly horopito so it is this speckled peppery red and all twisty. very very pretty.
