I am 55 and time to get in shape and off the meds. UPDATE. It has been 1 and half years since my retirement and I am doing great. I had lost 39 pounds and gained back 16 pounds. I reset my weight loss ticker in January and have lost 8 pounds since then. I have added strength training to my work outs and can feel the difference. The only med I take is metformin and I hope to get off that soon. My A1C is now at 5.3. It was nice to retire, but I am actively pursing part time employment. My goal is to stay on track and live another 30 or more years. FIVE YEARS LATER I just read this post and I am kind of sad I did find part time employment with a job I really love. At first I would exercise when I got home. I kept eating healthy. But I gradually exercised less and would indulge in a treat or two. So here it is 5 years later and I have gained 12 pounds. My A1C has gone to 6. I have a Drs appt Monday and I don’t think the news will be good So it’s back to some serious exercising and tracking all my food!

    Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.

    We can reverse years of damage to our bodies by deciding to raise our standards for ourselves, then living differently. Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them.
