Arthur, you have been such an inspiration. I am taking pages from your book to get my life back in order. I would love to meet you. I am 60, have multiple disabilities and my goal is to lose 154 pounds. I was a caregiver to my disabled husband for 26 years. Now, it is time for me to take care of myself. SOOOOO proud of you! I cry every time I see your video. God bless you, Arthur! Love, Maura Report
