I am 59 years old and recently retired. I have had a lifelong struggle with weight. I have asthma and high blood pressure. Recently I was told by my Dr. that I was prediabetic. This news really put a fire under me and I am determined to lose weight and get fit once and for all. I am going to the gym regularly and have just joined group sessions of personal training. As far as weight goes I am not concentrating on numbers just getting healthy and feeling better. Since I have started going to the gym regularly, I am 10 pounds down but even better have more energy and my skin glows. I am hoping the spark site will help with that fire I have lighted.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting before. I actually got an A on that assignment. Now I am in Public Relations and Design. A lot harder class now. Dental visits went very well too.

Thanks for the info. That sounds like too much wheat for me and wheat makes me feel unwell but I am going to look into other anti-inflammatory books. See if I can find some useful information.
