Betty and Nancy

I saw Betty and Nancy at the pool the other night. Betty said she has lost 35 pounds since joining in February by swimming and using machines for 2 hours daily after work. She said she no longer has knee and shoulder pain and at one time was having to get cortisone shots. She said she is craving and cooking healthy foods. She said she walks the grounds of RI Hospital during her lunch break and takes the stairs up to the 12th floor. She's a living miracle at age 44. "I want to be healthy for my grandson," she said.
Betty and Nancy have known each other since high school and their sons grew up together and are both 22. I think if more people met them they would join in the fun of getting healthy.
