I am 52 years old and I have two children. Brandon is 27 and Ashley is 24. I have 2 grandchildren, Bayden, 4 and Elina, 2 and a step grandaughter Hayley, 10. I worked all my life and for the past 2 years I have not been working. That's when the pounds piled on. It gradually went up to the point that I said, "this cannot happen. If I don't put an end to this, it's just going to go higher and higher." Then I decided to get ahold of myself, discipline myself and stick to it. I'm middle aged and if I don't do something now, I probably never will. Losing weight and getting in shape by exercise will change my future, in more ways than one, from the way it was heading.
