�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)
You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika
In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.
"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

Thank you so much for dropping by my page and leaving such a sweet, positive comment… I did not even know I was named motivator of the day, LOL! (It must've been because I posted a great -67 lb weight-loss since March 9, 2016.)

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog, "Is This How It Ends?" I'm sorry to read that your doctor did not encourage your endeavors. There are MANY people on Spark (1CrazyDog, GABY48 come to mind immediately), who have beaten what some physicians say was impossible, and have gotten off the cardiac as well as diabetic meds. The beauty of Type 2 Diabetes is there is a chance with appropriate weight loss that one can reverse the condition. The insulin is there, as you know, just cannot be "grabbed" when needed.
I wish you well as you continue with your weight loss plan. Don't give up now.
All the best,
