The Time is NOW!!.

I went to my doctor this morning, for my 3 month check up. Being diabetic, it's just a fact of life that I've grown used to. But these next 3 months will be a determining factor for me. I need to lose weight. I need to stick to an exercise program. I need to monitor my eating habits. I need to check my sugar more often. I need to get my A1C below 7. I am very close.

So here I go. I told the doc I would bust butt before my next appointment. I need to. My father had complications with being diabetic, I don't want to go through what he did.

Awhile ago, I started a blog on my weight loss, and wanted to see if anyone wanted to join in. I quit the blog after a week, a pride thing I guess. Well I'm doing it again. Over the next couple days I am going to set up my blog. If you would like to join me, offer any tips you can, or just pop in for a word of encouragement, it would be great. I need to do this for my health, I need to do this for my life. Anyone with me?

Yeah, put me in on it. I'm what my dr. calls pre-diabetic. A little family history. I've lost some but seem to have been at a standstill the past six months.

I'm usually quite a failure with the weight loss thing but maybe I need to know someone else is suffering with me! I'll be watching for a link to your weight loss blog.

Please add me to the list. I have just started Weight Watchers and really want to lose weight before summer.

Count me in Women! I'm about the same size as you, so trust me at our age you have a lot of company. I need to just go out and walk at first. Some health problems here too. I met a women one time that told me "When you reach 50, all hell breaks loose with your body" I had to laugh because I hardly knew her and you could tell she was a big party girl back in the day! But she wasn't to far off the mark ):
