“When you make a healthy lifestyle transition, it can seem very daunting at first. It may feel like it’s going to take forever before you see changes. That’s not true! Once I got started, it only took about a month before I not only felt much better, but felt like a superhero with much more energy than I had ever had before.” – Rachael Pontillo
