After readig this book I asked myself the following:
Need to lose weight?
How to lose weight fast ?
How to lose weight in a week ?
And now ... read my successful story here

Some excerpts from my diary:
- buy anti cellulite machine
- neck strengthening exercise
- for exercise abdominal woman
- health food store in vancouver
- exercise man abdominal for
- personal equipment exercise and care abdominal fitness
Good Luck!
