4 months ago I had my worst best day of my life. I was dx'd with diabetes, hypertension (219/120 bp ) and of course gout. I started medication and started walking to the end of the street and back. Since then I've increased my walk to 5+ miles a day and my weight this morning was 227.6. I'm following a low carb diet, taking meds and plowing ahead.

LOVE this type of inspiration! how awesome you are!
