DEFINITELY !!! I am 70 years young now and off Diabetes medication and High Blood pressure medication.
I am using cholesterol medication to get my triglycerides down. Family history of Cardiac problems.
I was diagnosed Type 2 diabetes at 66 years young and I found the spark BOOK looking for answers at Barnes and Noble. I am down over 50 pounds, I walk fast with others without huffing and puffing and I can walk easily 5 miles at a time with friends. We do it often 2 or three time a week, it is easier with a buddy for me, it makes it go faster and much more pleasant . We walk in the winter in Maine also. FINDING THAT BOOK was a victory for me I had tried all kinds of diets to help me to get off meds and b oy I am grateful. Pat in Maine. All this is a Major improvement
Pat in Maine. I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker. I will do it slowly I like it that way. Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip! JUST DO IT!
Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.
Remember that while money talks, Friendships sing and laugh out loud.
I have started eating right and losing weight as well as exercising more. Anyone had any luck getting off BP Meds or reducing amount taken by doing eating right, losing weight as well as exercising. Thanks. Doug
