My physical and mental health (the stress of the past) has actually with the new plan made an about face. I have already seen this humongous change in my health and the way I feel. Even my family and friends say things like "You have never looked so radiant and alive@ or "I have known you for 20 years and you have never looked so good or had so much energy ", and the best was when my sister said "you have your life back" and then she cried and I could not hear what she said but I know you understand what I have just wrote.
