I love to watch the TV show "Extreme Weight Loss". Chris Powell is such an amazing motivator and fitness expert. By the way, Chris and his family live in my neck of the woods: Phoenix, Arizona.
Chris added a comment to this photo on one of his Pinterest boards. Can you guess what he wrote?

YES I CAN!
