OK, I looked through many of the groups I would be interested in. This is the only group that has any recent activity (within 1 month).
I turn 50 in November. I started a medically supervised Healthy Living class through my doctor last Tuesday and CalorieKing is the reference guide provided. I decided to join yesterday, so I am on the 7 day online trial. I think I like it, but it seems to be taking a long time.
I started the class for my health. I am about 70 pounds overweight and on 11 different medications, including 2 for diabetes (type 2). My most recent med is tamoxifen for breast cancer. This is my second reason for joining the class. I am now a survivor of 2 different cancers. I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma when I was 21 many years ago.
One of my motivations is a little silly, but easily visualized. I had a double mastectomy with immediate construction. I chose to be a size smaller (B). Now I need my bottom half to match my top half (which will never change again larger or smaller.
This year truly is the start of the rest of my life.
To my health,
