Twenty, thirty, forty pounds slipped away. Today Keeler is 63 pounds lighter.

“It really came off fast early but now every two weeks or so I am losing two to three pounds,” Keeler said. “That is not discouraging. I am still losing weight and feeling better.

She joined One Way Fitness Center and spends each morning at the gym. She will ride a stationary bicycle for 45 minutes and perform some weight training.
