At the end of October, I got the Type 2 Diabetes scare. So I got back to Weight Watchers (WW) and to regular swimming at the Y

I have lost around 18 lbs and my swimming schedule has me in the pool 5 times per week for a distance of 2050 meters each workout.

I can’t believe the difference in how well I sleep, how my appetite has changed, how my attitude has improved, and how my overall fitness has bounced back.

If you are older, 55+, and you aren’t moving around, start. Even simple exercise like walking makes a big difference.

I had no idea how aggresively damaging inactivity can be as we age.

Repeat: Get up. Move around.
