I should thank bench presses for crafring these shoulders and getting rid of all the fat:

Female, 45, 5'4"
I started at 225 pounds in March 2016 and am down about 62 pounds now. (163 on the scale this morning.)

I've done it mostly through nutrition. I'm not "on a diet." I don't count calories or measure my food. I just don't eat sugar and processed food. I'm letting my body drive the weight loss. I have no idea where I'll end up. I've been moving more -- walking, primarily -- since I started, and for the last two months, I've also been doing strength training.

I'm seeing and feeling the results of the strength training. I'm getting stronger and my balance is improving. Earlier today I was out shopping and had to look at something on the lowest shelf. Without even thinking about it, I dropped into a frog squat so I could see and held it for a minute or so. I didn't have to hold onto the shelf for balance, or brace my hands against my knees to help myself stand back up. It was only after I'd stood up that I even realized what I'd done.

A frog squat may not sound like much, but 8 months ago, I was 8 pounds away from Stage III/morbid obesity, and even going DOWN the stairs was taxing for me. My leg muscles were so weak (and my balance so poor) that I could barely support my heft as I moved against gravity. So to be where I am today -- 60-ish pounds lighter and able to dip into and out of a frog squat with no trouble -- is pretty significant.

That's great. Congratulations on your efforts and progress. Keep it up.

It takes a special kind confirmation bias to blow off the President who is under investigation by the FBI for firing the FBI Director as "no big deal".

Does it feel good to be a complete fool for this Narcissistic loon you elected?
