I've been a SP member for since June 2011. I'm now 60, turn 61 on the 30th of Sept. Type 2 Diabetes ok, not great. I've gained some weight...staying at the 200 lb level. I joined a gym and am doing strengthening exercises and cardio 3 days a week, cardio only 2 days. I'm still a full time pastor, loving living in Santa Fe New Mexico

I will return to logging what I eat, and exercising faithfully.

I am a Lutheran pastor, married for 35 years and a mother to 3; our youngest and only daughter is 22. Our son was married in April of this year, in Vietnam, where he lives

I love to read and am more 'in my head' than physical, as is my husband, so I have to be intentional about getting exercise.
