I am 55 and time to get in shape and off the meds. UPDATE. It has been 1 and half years since my retirement and I am doing great. I had lost 39 pounds and gained back 16 pounds. I reset my weight loss ticker in January and have lost 8 pounds since then. I have added strength training to my work outs and can feel the difference. The only med I take is metformin and I hope to get off that soon. My A1C is now at 5.3. It was nice to retire, but I am actively pursing part time employment. My goal is to stay on track and live another 30 or more years. FIVE YEARS LATER I just read this post and I am kind of sad I did find part time employment with a job I really love. At first I would exercise when I got home. I kept eating healthy. But I gradually exercised less and would indulge in a treat or two. So here it is 5 years later and I have gained 12 pounds. My A1C has gone to 6. I have a Drs appt Monday and I don’t think the news will be good So it’s back to some serious exercising and tracking all my food!
