6:21 am
going to let her do that. jean jadhon/wdbj7: but erica did not just go from doing nothing to being an instructor- it all started with small steps erica: the way i started was using some of the equipment on my own so that i could be in my own little world and hope no one would look at me she also took short walks-- and eventually built up the courage to take a class. erica: i had intense knee pain from being so obese and intense back pain 32 erica: i heard the instructors say things like 'there's no judgement and if you need a modifciation there are options for you.' the instructors showed her proper alignment so she could exercise without hurting herself. i like lemon. i like onions. i like celery. i like grapes. at home, erica now stocks the refridgerator with fruits and vegetables at eye level- her kitchen
