As my screen name says I wanna be healthy. To me that means get and keep by blood sugar and blood pressure under control. I would prefer get off the meds, but would be happy to cut back. I want to get my lipid lab work numbers in acceptable ranges.
At 68, I have outlived my father, who died at 60, my mother who died at 64, and both brothers who are also gone. I realize that no one lives forever, but I want to be able to be active and mobile for whatever years I have left.
I am beyond wanting to be thin, look good in a bathing suit etc. I accept the way I look and phooey on anyone who does not. I would be happy just to fit into the clothes that became too tight a year ago so I don't have to go out and spend more money on a bigger size.
