In the late 1990s, I lost over 100 pounds going from 305 pounds to 205 pounds! I then began my journey of proper health & fitness discovering the right combination of 3 Keys to Excellence in Health that every one of us should strive for - Exercise, Nutrition, and Rest! The right Exercises, proper Nutrition, and adequate Rest/Stress Relief are the 3 Keys to being healthy!
