258 pounds, size 22W. 42" waist, 52" abs, 49.5" hips. I sat at the computer browsing through one of my favorite blogs, "Large Family Logistics" and read an article about the author's favorite "stretching exercise" called T-Tapp. I clicked on the link and looked around the website. My heart began to beat a little faster with hope--was it possible? The success stories were impressive, but I was skeptical. Still, my curiosity was piqued so I read some more. I decided to order the Total System and promised myself that I would do the 15-minute workout. After all, I reasoned, ANYONE can do 15 minutes a day.
Here are actual notes from my records of the first 10 days:
Day 1 - received package; watched "Yes You Can" DVD and Instructional #1
