Okay, I am getting old. As a teenager I walked and skied in 0 degree weather and thought it was a nice day. Now I have trouble going out when its 40 and feels like 30! I do have fibro and arthritis and it does make a difference. Yesterday I was able to join a fitness club for 10 bucks. It is only 3 blocks from my house. I can walk, bike, or drive there easily and with little cost. My budget is tight. I have decided to forgo fast food or little treats here and there to help save some money to pay my fitness dues every month. I have a 70% chance of getting type 2 diabetes because of relatives who have it or did have it. The percentage actually could be much higher because I did that when I only knew about my brother's diabetes, not my cousins, great uncles, and great grandmother's diabetes. My life is very stressful right now and I tend to eat when stressed. My alternative is to go exercise!
