Time for me

Having gained over 100 pounds in the last 13 years I am ready to surrender. I am paying the price with sore joints and body aches. My biggest concern is how out of breath I get after even small amounts of movement. I have high blood pressure and cholesterol. My job is very demanding physically and there are days when I wonder if I will make it through. My husband and son are both very active and I'm ready to join them!
