It's been a while since I posted anything; back in April I had posted I couldn't make it across the 25 yard pool doing freestyle. This morning I decided to see how far I could go - and I did 700 yards of FS non stop.

It has also helped me burn away 40.2 lbs so far.

I am very happy I've stuck with it. It's a life time thing for me now!

Best,
Marian

Excellent progress, Marian.

I fixed my shoulder without plastic (unless you count the stretch cords my physical therapist showed me how to use) and, like Steve my use of NSAIDs has dropped to zero (though from a much lower base than Mr. Unruh).
