Footprints in the Sand

A walk on the beach, one of my greatest pleasures. Having grown up in New England, I've spent many hours of pure joy walking along the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. But I let my health suffer, my weight get control of me and two years ago this very week, I couldn't walk even 10 yards with my beloved husband down a gorgeous stretch of beach in Puerto Rico.

But NO MORE! I made the change and it was worth every step of the nearly 10,000 we took along Palmetto Dunes beach this morning. It was heavenly!

Don't let your issues with food stand in the way of what you truly love to do, whether it's walking on the beach, playing with your children in the park, skiing with friends or playing tennis with your significant other. Life is too short, too precious to watch from the sidelines. Don't waste another minute being a prisoner of your body. Make the change now so you won't miss another minute of all the joy that an active life has to offer.

(Tomorrow, I will attempt to ride a bike on the beach. Stay tuned.)
