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.

I am allergic to dairy and I am pretty sure wheat too. The doc at the student health center thinks it's an inflammatory issue. I gained a lot of weight while not exercising but I got 10 lbs off so far. I just have such a long way to go.
Yes, I empathize and sympathize with others but everyone will have their own personal battles. I am grateful that it's nothing worse but at the same time, I am not happy with all the damage my body has endured. I will keep trying. :)

Hope the summer is starting to treat you a little better!

Thanks for the sparkgoodie. I did play Tennis which is a favourite sport of mine and I haven't played in a while.
