Tall Rusty

I am a retired single male living in the Sacramento area. I have Type II Diabetes and Osteoarthritis with 4 joint replacements and have recently learned that it is also affecting my lower back. I never cared much for exercise nor have had much self discipline to watch my diet. I love my food and living in Wine Country have collected more wine than I can reasonably drink.

I am a retired single male living in the Sacramento area. I have Type II Diabetes and Osteoarthritis with 4 joint replacements and have recently learned that it is also affecting my lower back. I never cared much for exercise nor have had much self discipline to watch my diet. I love my food and living in Wine Country have collected more wine than I can reasonably drink. My friends benefit from this. I am ready to make some changes with a goal to loose 50 pounds in the next year and hopefully reverse my blood sugars to normal. My Sister EHagfeld has been a major motivating factor in this because she lost 95 of her 100 pound goal and is a blogger on this site. As a Air Force Vet I am taking advantage of the Move Program at the local VA Med Center with supervision from my doctor and dietician. My my supplemental medical insurance include a free membership to the Silver Sneakers which I will join in August 2011.

Hi welcome to the Over60s team!! Come join in our chat -- of course mostly female but you'll do just fine I"m sure! Good luck on your journey - SP is a wonderful place and very supportive! I just had my left knee replaced in June (had rt done in 2008) and hopefully will be able to move a little more with LESS pain. Keep up the good work... the Silver Sneakers - now I wished there was a group around here for that!! Again welcome and if I can be of any help - please just ask!

Glad to see you're beginning to rack up a few SparkPoints. I find it amazing that over 15,000 other people joined SparkPeople during the week in June you joined. That's a huge class, and it isn't even New Year's Resolution time. Hope you find some great encouragement here to reach your goals. Hug, Hug!
