Hooray I am back on line.

I am 72 years young and over weight and feel physically drained most of the time. However, mentally I have a vision of being healthy, slim, and active.

I am working on getting things organized so that I can reach my goals. Being an insulin dependent diabetic, does not help with the weight loss. In case you do not know it: insulin is a growth harmone so if you are already over weight and start taking it the ease of loosing weight is harder.

So weight loss for those of us who are also insulin resistant is difficult. However not impossible. Slow very slow.

We do not seem to have any REAL support groups here in Reno for diabetics, that is away from the medical scene.

While I did not have access to computer I studied everything I could find on Loosing Weight and now feel more confident that I will reach my goals within 12 to 16 months.

Educate yourself, keep a positive attitude and above all do things that you enjoy to keep moving. You do not have to be perfect at it just do it!

I also don't want to get to the point that I can't be active. I have been working at it but seem to be accident prone. I was walking a lot and riding bike but injured my knee. Not giving up though---still work some with weights and plan to be back on bike asap. Carol
