No longer in pain

September 23rd, 2007

I have read many, many books in my life and this is the first time I have ever felt compelled to contact the author, but I just had to thank you.

I am 39 years old and I am over weight. I have back pain and sciatica. My son is 9 years old and I want so badly to do more with him but these ailments have limited my activity. I was almost ready to resign myself to a life of inactivity pending my decision to lose weight, but losing weight is very hard when one cant move very much without having to sit down. I bought your book (ChiWalking) just a few days ago and I am not even finished reading it, but just the process of re-aligning my core has changed my life. For three days I have been conscious of aligning my core. All day I am conscious of it because when my core is properly aligned, my pain is gone. I don't mean diminished, I mean GONE!!! My doctor is either unable to, unwilling to or doesn't know how to fix my problem, but just a couple of chapters of your book have changed my life. Yesterday my son and I went for a mile and a half walk. I can\'t tell you how fantastic that felt. In fact, when we got home he was more worn out than me. Today it is raining and I am upset because I really want to go for a walk. Time to dust off the treadmill. I can't thank you enough and I am so excited about the future and will keep you updated as to my progress if you don't mind. Please don't feel obligated to respond to this message, I just thought that you deserved to know that you can add one more changed life to your portfolio.

Thank you,    Sean Fitzpatrick
