Hi. my name is Francine and I need to lose some weight and eat healthy foods all the time as I am a diabetic and also a asthmatic. I never had a weight problem growing up( I was very thin then). It was difficult to accept all the weight that has been piling on this frame of mine. So I'm taking this journey to lose weight and get healthy. I'm 64 years young, would like to look better, I know I can do this, if it takes longer than I want---so be it, will hang in there.I like the saying, age ...

I will try to remember that its what you do for your body that keeps one younger regardless of your age.

Hi Fran, thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my blog post. Gym memberships through the health insurance is great. With a very low monthly fee, I can go to as many gyms as I like. If I decide to stay with the new trainer at my current gym, I can still go to the group classes at the "new" gym. The new gym was good (other than needing a paint job). It was clean, the equipment appeared to be well maintained, and it offered group classes within my schedule. I'm considering trying out a couple of classes. Thanks again! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for your support on my blog. Grieving is difficult but it's so important to allow ourselves to relax and keep the good memories alive.

Hi Fran. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm from the Twin Cities area too, Saint Paul, south east suburbs. I was always a skinny kid. I wore a size 11 in high school. I remember thinking I was fat even then because most of the other girls were a size 5 or 7. I wore a size 16 in my late 20's, and really started putting on the pounds through my 30's and 40's. Now I'm working on repairing all the years of damage and neglect to my body. It's never too late, and you're so right. Age is just a number. Keeping fit and healthy will make you feel younger.
