69 and Diabetic
I'm a retired teacher, married 50 years to the same grumpy old man, mother of two, grandmother of three. I've done this so many times before... but here I go again. I'm diabetic so have to watch carbs, need to lose about 40 lbs., so have to watch calories and fat ... have all sorts of joint problems so exercise is too painful, even water aerobics which I found out the hard way ... Fitday has helped me before, just keeping track of everything carefully. I'm cooking healthy, eating smaller portions, going online before going to a restaurant to check out their nutrition information so I'll know what to order, and probably eat only half of it. I can do this. I've actually been doing quite well since just before Christmas, have lost about 10 lbs so far. Today's weight 178.5. Goal 140.
