welcome Jesseh boo
glad you found us!, I am 51 and when I was your age I carried my weight better then I do now. I was then well overweight but was not concerned!< I applaud you for doing something now as I wish I did.
Now back about 4 years ago my blood pressure went up!, and I started going to see the Doctor regullarly, she told me of things to come if I did not make changes and she has been correct. my A1c went up I now have to check my Blood sugar so instead of the what next I got serious about regaing my health!, one of the first thing I noted is being able to sleep more soundly, then less legg and anckle pain. then I found FITDAY,, and this place rocks, I feel responcible to myself bye journeling my progress!, and I have committed myself to stay and help others as I have got great help here, some people have given me support only by telling their story and nothing more. Others have posted kind helpful things ,, you must fight these disease for your self. and know we are all here to support each other,,
All the best Bo
