Hi Leslie, Its nice to meet you! Thank you for accepting my friend request. I enjoy walking and hiking too. I used to do white water rafting but it has been a while since I did any of that. I am trying to get fit again so I can see what I want to do now. I don't want to get injured. I love the program so far. I am only a month in. I am doing well. My excess weight is coming off slowly. I just gave up eating any added salt. I heard that is a biggy for some people. I needed to drink more water and get at least an hour of sun in every day. I was doing it somedays not others. The people here are friendly and have seen alot of what everyone goes through. So I am staying raw (LFRV) and being more consistant now. It should work. Hope to here from you now and again. Good Luck on your journey!
