I read Ernest's response to my Magic Potion letter in this blog and wanted everyone to see it. Ernest Barton is a rock star and an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your story. I hope that you don't mind me sharing it here.

I was 375 pounds and felt horrible. Lethargic, ugly, lazy. I was a mess. I have been morbidly obese (as my doctor calls it) since my early 20's and have tried every diet fad known to man. Whether it was chalky tasting shakes, to eating pork as long as I didn't have nonfat yogurt, to watered down lettuce soup and everything in between. I was fed up with a diet industry that didn't care and simply gave up. I knew I would always be fat and was going to die young. I just wilted and ate fast food to my hearts content because it made me "happy". Then I saw P90 on TV.... I bought it and in my normal lazy fashion, it sat on my desk for over a year. Then in Feb. 2006, I was sitting in my chair, tired from a sedentary day at work and falling asleep at 6 PM. I felt so fat, like I was stuck in the chair and couldn't move. I breathed heavy walking from the chair to the kitchen. I had enough!!! I got up and dusted of Power90. Read the documentation, logged into mybeachbody.com, WOWY and fitday. I said today I am going to do it. On 2/6/2006, I started Power90 and worked the program exactly as described. With will power and support from my family I have completed 38 days. I have lost 33 pounds so far but that isn't the best part. I am still very fat but feel great! I walk proud and confident. Tony's program changed my way of thinking about life and food. I don't have the bad cravings and love getting out and doing things. Whether, it is just going to the park or doing dishes with my wife, I am active again and am experiencing life again... away from the TV and chair! I am still fat and have a long way to go... but I have a new lifestyle and look forward to a long future!!! From the bottom of the heart of the entire Barton family... Thanks Tony!
