Attempting again to Make Better Choices

I'm 43 years old and recently was diagnosed with Type2 Diabetes and High Cholesterol. I have three children 6, 3 and 2 years of age and a beautiful wife. I'd like to be here when I'm 80 and the only way that will happen is if I start taking better care of myself by makin' better choices and livin' the dream instead of sitting on the sidelines.

Hi, I'm Katie, I work at the Clifton Springs Diabetes Health center. While reading your head liner I saw you had posted you have Type 2 diabetes. We have a diabetes team and support group called Fingerlakes Fitness 4 Health. If you look through the teams you will find us. We have Diabetes Educators, Nurses and Dietitians here for your help. We would love you to join our team. Let me know if you are interested.
