Journey Toward Being Healthy at 50!

I am 49 years old and I was recently put on insulin because of my diabetes. I was also told that I have fatty liver.

In 2006 I suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm and it was discovered that I had multiple brain aneurysms. I went from a very active lifestyle to a sedentary life. This has caused me to go through depression and a 60 pound weight gain. I find that I am struggling to motivate myself and depressed.

I am 49 years old and I was recently put on insulin because of my diabetes. I was also told that I have fatty liver.

In 2006 I suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm and it was discovered that I had multiple brain aneurysms. I went from a very active lifestyle to a sedentary life. This has caused me to go through depression and a 60 pound weight gain. I find that I am struggling to motivate myself and depressed. At my doctor's request I met with a nutritionist who brought me to tears. She told me I am on the road to dialysis and/or a possible heart attack. She then said "Would you want to your kids to carry the burden of having to take care of you because you did not do anything to help yourself?"

While it was harsh, it was what I needed to hear. My SparkPage will track all that I do - Good Or Bad. I am hoping this is the beginning to my road to success.

emoticon Just stopping by to welcome you to Spark People. Regarding your comment about being afraid to fail, failure only comes when you decide to stop trying to reach your goals. I have had many re-starts on my journey. Turn each "failure" into a learning tool and a stepping stone to overcome that particular abstacle next time it rears its head.

I wish you success in reaching your goals.
