Hey, I read Eric's book last fall, and the idea of being an athlete appealed to me.  At the time, I had a 3/8" lift in one shoe.  Since doing the exercises, my leg length has evened up, and I no longer require a lift.  I can walk without pain now. I also have lost 60 pounds, and walk most every day.  Not having pain really helps.  When I stop doing the exercises, the pain comes back, so I keep doing them.  Running may be next!  I do the slant board exercises, and I had to start those at a low angle and work up.  I do the core exercises too. It was all I could do to get in the starting positions for them, and now I can do 6 reps.  Single knee toggle is the only one I have to modify still.  Thank you Eric for your help in me regaining health.
