  1. Mike Pompeo:

    There's no doubt I'm burning fewer calories today than I was when I was able to get on the elliptical, so, yes, I knew there'd be chance that I would put some of the weight back on, and I probably have [in recent weeks]. But when I started this, I didn't have a target weight in mind. I just knew I needed to get healthier, and that's what I hope I can maintain — that mindset — for the rest of my life.

  5. Ari Seth Cohen:

    Spending two days with her in Montenegro, there was no complaints about jet lag. She stayed up longer than anyone the whole trip. She was dancing, she was joyful, she was giving, her whole philosophy about aging (is) how we're constantly recycling ourselves and how there really is no age -- it's really just a matter of your mindset. Seeing a 97-year-old woman that vital, for me, is incredibly powerful.
