Getting Motivated

I was just diagnosed with high blood pressure and need to eat healthier and lose weight. I've known for a long time that being overweight would increase my chances of developing high blood pressure and diabetes (which both run in my family). Well, now I have them both and I will lose this weight in order to live longer.

6/17/08 - Update: Diabetes is reversed after 3 months! My doctor said to just keep doing what I'm doing and they'll check bloodwork every 3 months. This is the best news I could have gotten. SP has made all the difference for me.

Hi Betsy, Sorry it has been so long since I wrote. A lot of changes going on. I am feeling much better and my diabetes is pretty much under control at the moment (knock on wood).
I have been going to school to be a Real Estate Agent so I've been STRESSED out big time. People in their 40's should be exempt from having to take tests I think. It should be the privledge of growing older. LOL
I have lost a little bit more weight, didnt gain anything while I was in school and now that I'm going to be in the working world again, I'm really going to have to lose some. I always work better when I'm feeling better. Probably like most people I suppose.
I hope everything has been going well with you and try to stay warm. Our weather here in Boise, Idaho has just turned a little cooler. 50's and low 60's. We had some snow up in the mtns but hopefully we wont get any in the valley until closer to the end of November! hahahha I can only wish!!!!
Anyways, take care and I hope to talk to you soon. Anita1962

Thanks for the pedicure!! I can't wait to get the real thing! Hopefully in a few weeks! LOL! I'm glad you had fun shopping! It DOES make a huge difference in shopping attitude when you can grab something off the rack and it actually fits and looks good!
Take Care my friend! Lisa
