Lost 24 pounds.
Dear Mr. Little:I feel the need to share my Gazelle Freestyle success story with everyone interested.My story isn’t just about losing weight and getting fit. It’s even more awesome.Before I started using the Gazelle I spent close to two years bedridden due to organ transplant surgery. I had been diagnosed with osteoporosis, joint problems, neck and low back pain. I had become less and less active over a period of nine years before the transplant. Up until this time I had always been active and physically fit. I was determined to find a way to be fit again. I wasn’t satisfied just to be alive. I wanted quality of life again.I saw the Gazelle on TV. It looked like something I could do so I bought one. At first, I could only do ten minutes maximum. I went at this pace for a few weeks. Gradually, I added five minutes at a time. Now, I try to do two to three miles at a time, and I use it everyday with possible. I lean forward to tighten my buttocks and backward to tighten my stomach. I also turn sideways to work my inner thighs.I would recommend this machine to anyone, but especially for anyone recovering from major surgery or physically limited in any way. This machine helped me to become physically fit and active again. I wanted and needed more than to just look good in my clothes again. I wanted to have the energy and fitness to play soft ball with my granddaughters.This past summer all we went hiking, trail-riding and kayaking. Instead of lying in bed watching active people on television, I’m out there, riding, hiking, running, playing and loving life again.I’d love the opportunity to tell other people in similar situations I was in about the difference using the Gazelle can make in their lives.I’ve enclosed some photos. However, the before does not show my heaviest weight period.I’m fifty-eight and feel GREAT even after all I’ve been through.Thanks and KEEP DOING WHAT YOU? RE DOING!Stephanie - Virginia (HAPPY AND GRATEFUL!!!) August - 2008
