I have got to get going in the right direction... I will be 55 in July and that is the same age as when my DAD died... I got to turn my life around now... so that means getting my butt out of this chair and walking more... eating better and cutting out soda... Thats the hard part...

    I turned 55 in December 2013, and it's like WHERE did the time go? It has occurred to me just how young my Dad was when he was diagnosed with a severe case of RA [40s] and with lung cancer [late 50s], and it occurs to me he wasn't that old when he passed away - not even 70, and I am going to be there in 15 years!

So I hear you! What are you going to start with? If it seems overwhelming right now, and I just mention that because it still does sometimes to me, just start with one or two things, like walking 15 minutes, or drinking 8 glasses of water, or tracking for that day....I know that is more than two things, but I was just naming things.
