This morning I got a reply from jj watts mother Thank you for sending this to us. *I have forwarded it to J.J. - you're right he is extremely busy but I wanted to be sure he got to see it. *I also print these type of emails off and create a binder for someday his children and grandchildren to read. *I love your email and am glad you have been so successful on your weight loss. *Keep that going it will help you live a long life. *Not everyone is as lucky as my boys to receive so much training on nutrition, diet, exercise, etc. from the college strength coaches. *You obviously found something to work and the story about your Grandmother is terrific. J.J.'s Great Grandma is turning 95 this year. *Her great grandson told her she had to live to 99 for sure since it's J.J.'s number. *We all shushed him and said we hope she lives much longer than that. I must run - thanks again for your support and the email. Connie Watt (J.J.'s Mom & CEO of the foundation) Wow bad timeing on my part?
