I am trying very hard to get myself into some kind of shape, (instead of the round shape I"m in)... to take control of my health and improve it each day by eating better and exercising. You may think this is for selfish reasons,, well it's really not.
My mother passed away in 2002 from complications to diabetes (type 2) and I have a sister who is heading down the same road. This is a preventable disease and could be completely reversed by diet and exercise.
With that, for my daughters and husbands sake, instead of getting a diagnosis in 5 years that I have pre-diabetes, I'm taking steps now..steps that should have been taken years ago, to get healthier..1 MILE...may not seem a lot,,,but it's the first step to a healthier ME!
