The Fabulous Fifties

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. ...

The minute you think of giving up,
think of the reason why you held on so long!!
