Lost 50 pounds.
February 24, 2008 Dear Mr. Little: I would like to thank you for not only changing my life but for providing the world with equipment for people who are overweight, out of shape and/or have health issues. I purchased an Edge Gazelle almost a year ago and along with changing my eating habits and exercising I have lost weight. I have purchased all kinds of exercise equipment throughout the years only to have them go unused. I have suffered with chronic back pain since having surgery in 1994 for a herniated disc. A second surgery in 2000 to correct the first botched surgery, and a third surgery in 2002 for problems caused by the first two surgeries. This caused the padding on the bottom of my foot and the pain started to affect my hip and knees. My knees hurt whenever I tried to bend down and my weight didn’t help. Any type of high impact exercise was out of the question. I resigned myself to the fact that I was going to go through the rest of my life inactive and just generally out of shape. Then, I had the good fortune of the company that I worked for to know a weight loss company and they came to our office. I started attending the weekly meetings and I lost 10 pounds. I knew that I was going to do this in spite of my health issues. Then, I saw you on HSN. I had seen you before, but I always changed the channel after a couple of minutes. (Your wacky, upbeat personality always caught my attention.) Then, one day while channel surfing I stopped to watch HSN but this time I didn’t change the channel; I paid attention and started to think that maybe I could actually use the Gazelle! I purchased my first Gazelle shortly thereafter and the first time I tried to use it I only lasted a few minutes. Back on it the next day and the day after and the day after that and I now use it for 30-40 minutes and have lost a total of 50 pounds. Not only that, my back, knees and hip no longer hurt and I have taken on new confidence level and it is boosted and I feel like a million bucks! I bought a new wardrobe and was complimented daily on how nice I look. (Pictures enclosed). When people ask me what I have been doing, I always tell them that I have changed my eating habits and then I say, “Do you know Tony Little”? Most everyone will say that they have seen you on T.V. but I take it one step further and tell them about the Gazelle and how it has changed my life! I have turned into a walking advertisement for the Gazelle! Thank you so much for sharing your vision, your passion for life and for helping others and the low impact way to exercise that really works. All the best, Roxanne - Ohio
