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 Reffie for saying that. But we also remembered that this week is a hard time for her too. Last year around this time her husband fell from a ladder and had brain injuries that kept him in the hospital for almost a week before he died. Wednesday it will be a year since he died. They were married for 60 some years. I think she let her emotions carry her away. Hopefully in a few days she will realize her mistake.

Yeah. I think you are not supposed to eat mulberries if they are not ripe, but I'm not really sure. I'm sure my parents would know. I'll ask next time if I can think of it.
