I'm turning 30 in just a few weeks and I feel like for the first time in my life that I "have it together" as far as my diet and exercise goes. I grew up in a family where soda and ice cream were eaten daily. I never knew the true nutritive value of food until I started to eat healthier (in order to lose weight). Now my meals are balanced between fruits, veggies, protein, and limited starches. I exercised "here and there" through out the years but was never active in highschool or college sports. About 2 years ago I bought a series of workouts videos from an infomercial and I've been hooked ever since. Although there have been small periods of time, within the past 2 years, that I've veered off track, I have ALWAYS gotten back up and started working out again. I'm pleased with my progress and now I feel I have the power to have this become a life-long change.
