I suggest to make before pictures, I saw my first positive changes after just 2 weeks and that motivated me more then any other motivational pics, quotes or etc. I think recording progress is the most effective way to keep motivation up :)

Favorite Place in the USA

Topic • 4 replies

If you could only travel to one place in the USA, where would it be? To see a broadway show in New York City?  A ski resort in the rockies? Or maybe a warm sunny beach somewhere in California?

Newest reply

I just got back from Alaska. Aside from the rain, one of the best trips I've done. You couldn't ask for a more peaceful setting full of wildlife.
