Restarted my walking this past week. It’s funny how something ingrained into your routine,in such a short time. I finally weighed myself and I lost 3 lbs. I feel so much lighter. I could float on …….. OK, I’ll float later. I am proud of that. Before I wasn’t doing anything. My doctor states that it’s best to lose slowly, build muscle, tighten the skin. As time goes on, I will lose more as my body adjust to my new way of eating. My skin/hair/nails are going through a transformation as well. Let me introduce you to my first line of defense. You can look up the advantages of the vitamins I use. I only copied the information that aids in overall health and weight loss for me. Gotta go. The Strain is on.

Vitamin C is required for the production of the protein collagen, which is found in the tendons, skin, bones, cartilage, ligaments and blood vessels. Collagen and vitamin C are necessary to support the body tissues, heal wounds and help maintain blood vessel structure. Vitamin C also functions as a cofactor assisting biochemical reactions, as an antioxidant preventing the degradation of substances in the body, and as a detoxifier reducing the toxicity of medications and chemicals. http://www.ehow.com/
The main function of vitamin D is to help the body absorb calcium and phosphorus in the small intestine. Calcium is needed to support bone mineralization (hardening of bones), cell functions, and proper nerve and muscle function.http://altmedicine.about.com/
