New to CK but just wanted to say that with the help of a bowflex, working out 6 days a week, utilyzing the BodyBugg and good positive attitude - one can overcome anything. I was diagnosed withprostate cancer, suffered a stroke in June from the female hormone shots and still worked out. This past month (January) with the help of journaling, portion control and the high tech data bases available - I have dropped 17 pounds. My goal is 51 pounds by april. This site is an awesome site for support, and information on "clean eating."
