I have a dream. It involves flyfishing, requires a loss of 87 pounds, a big increase in fitness, learning Spanish and a roundtrip airfare to Patagonia.

The things I enjoy are flyfishing, reading, walking in the woods (too out of shape now) and writing. I'm 62 yo and have some aches, pains and injuries that have accumulated over the years.

I'm a type 2 diabetic and in less than a month on Spark People I have reduced my medication and hope to be off of it completely by the end of the year.

It has occurred to me of late that I am running out of time to make that trip I have wanted for 15 years to the pristine fishing waters of Patagonia. I am already overweight and out of shape so I am here to fix that so I will be able to hike to the best fishing spots. Of course I want to go to the west side where getting around will take more muscle.

Your encouragement will be appreciated.

I lost 80 pounds a few years ago when I first was diagnosed with diabetes, dropping from 287 to 207. Now 30 of those pounds have sneaked back on so I need to lose them again and 57 more to reach my goal of 150 by the end of the year.
