    Anyone who has lost all the weight they have

    should know the tremendous confidence boost you get from having a slim waist line. The path to becoming overweight isn't something that happens overnight. Don't get me wrong I was active as a child, even more active than most kids. I used to swim two hours a day, bike, and stay...
