Email of the Day: I Fell In Love With Exercise

When I started listening to you, I was in kidney failure, on dialysis, and had no energy. You talked about exercising and even had some callers do push-ups. I would be jealous that you could go for a hike or a caller could do a push-up. I thought I would give anything to be able to go on a walk or dance around the house and feel good at the end, and I vowed if I had a kidney transplant, I would do all of those things. I finally got my new kidney. I counted down the weeks until I could begin to exercise, saying I was going to make Dr. Laura proud I was not feeling sorry for myself. I was going to enjoy my health!



The first day I could, I got up at 4:30 in the morning and started to work out. It felt so good, I decided I could go to the gym. I’ve been doing it ever since and every day I still see improvements. I’ve even inspired all of my friends to get moving.


Thank you for encouraging exercise and for not letting callers get by with β€œpoor me,” β€œI am fat” or β€œI don’t have the time to exercise” excuses. You inspired me, and because of you, I fell in love with exercise!
