"If you want to lower your blood pressure, you can do it!"
"My blood pressure was 178... now it's 129"
"My blood pressure was 178 when I started with you guys. Actually that had came down that day because it was higher than that, because my doctor wanted to send me to the hospital. I told him, "Look if you're gonna increase my medicine, send me the prescription and I'll just take it." That's the way I felt, but I said you say I need to take it, I'll take it. Knowing that it's 129, 130... that's a plus for me! That is a major plus."
"I feel more important about myself now."
"I was 300 pounds..."
"I wasn't as sad as I used to be... Because when I took that stuff off the wall, because I didn't want to see nobody smiling at me. I didn't want to see my pictures like that picture right there... I was 300 pounds in the burgundy outfit. That's me and now this is the new me! So yeah, I've come a long way. I've come a long way. So I'm like okay, I looked at that box, I said I'm going to put some of these pictures up. I was at home by myself when they came in, 'Mama y'alright?' I said, 'Oh, I'm great.' 'You sure?' 'I'm great!' 'Then what was wrong?' 'I said nothing, I'm great.' I said, 'Okay, I just decided I wanted stuff on the wall.' They said, 'Really?' I said, 'Yeah!'
"I'm not going to have Beyonce's body, but I'm going to be pretty darn close to it!"
"But when I see those pictures up there of me, one when I was like 24... If I can get close to that, I'm good! But I have to look at the fact that I'm 58 years old. No, I'm not going to have Beyonce's body, but I'm going to be pretty darn close to it!"
"Yea, I'm sexy!"
"I was 300 pounds wearing a size 26... now I wear a 16 to 18."
"I'm like, damn this is me!"
"I feel the difference!"
"I feel a difference! I feel the difference I really do. A burst of energy! Not because the grandkids are here, but energy just for me. A lot of stuff that I would deem as something that would take me forever, that I didn't want to do... You know how we procrastinate, now I just get up and do it. I like the way, I like the way it made me feel. I really did."
