I am a retired school teacher. I have had this blog for a long time but haven't posted in a really long time. Since I started here I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and high blood pressure.

Now is the time for me to lose this weight and keep it off. I have lost and gained several times. I need to be able to keep up with these boys. We now have three grandsons as of June 1st. There ages are 6 years old, 3 years old and three weeks old. I will update pics soon.

My main goal right is to get healthy and stay healthy. My blood pressure has come down and blood sugar is getting better. My next blood test is July 7th, that will be my three month date since being diagnosed.

"I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step.
If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.
In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking."

My sister and bro-in-law left this morning so I will now be able to focus more on my fitness. I hope to be able to do the Step Out for Diabetes 5K on Oct. 22. I'm attempting a 10K on Oct. 16 though and we'll have to see what that and the next week brings. I'm supposed to go to the winery on Oct. 22 or 23 for a 40the birthday celebration, just haven't heard the finalized plans for it yet. It would be fun to meet and walk with you! I'll let you know after my 10K!

How are things going for you? Aren't you loving this weather!!! Have a great weekend!

When is the diabetes walk? I think I saw that STLOIUSWOMAN is walking one at Creve Couer Lake. Is that the one you're talking about? If I'm free, I'd love to do it.

Hope you're enjoying this cool weather! I mowed the lawn today without breaking a sweat. That was nice:)
