I'm 50, and would really like to lose weight. I've always been over weight, always struggled with weight, my whole family does. But I'm concerned about myself. My kids have graduated college, my husband works out of town a lot and I really just need to spend some time focusing on me. I have type 2 diabetes that I'd really like to manage better and some mild hypertension that I am pretty sure is mostly stress related but weight related as well.
I dislike organized exercise but I have found the Leslie Sansone videos sort of fun and motivational. In the past year I've graduated from College myself, obtained new employment, paid off bills, created new one, and had 2 surgeries. I'm certain I can get back on track but I must find my get up and go... it got up and left!!!

I have always told my kids the difference between Can and Can't is the T which means TRY! So Here it goes. Again!

Begin excercising both strength and aerobic. I have discovered the bike trail and need to work on strength for distance.
I am also tracking what I eat to manage diabetes and caloric intake.



Personal Information:
I'm a new empty nester. It ocurred to me that I have lived my whole life for my kids and other people and I really need to focus a little bit on myself. It's going to be hard for others to grasp this I think, I hope I can keep it up!

I like reading, camping, and traveling
