  1. I’ve been meaning to buy a bike, payday is coming up soon. I’ve been swimming four times a week and doing the ethosien diet I’m in the best shape of my life, lost 40 lbs. in the last four months. Need to get outside and get some fresh air in my lungs

  2. I love walking, haven’t owned an automobile in 20 years. Walking as my only form of transportation, and a good diet, are the reasons I’m in great shape at age 51!
