I am an internet marketer/SEO type by trade. What that means is I sit at a computer like I am now for 12 – 15 hours a day. Right now, it’s going on 18 hours. I am also a workaholic. However, I do manage to do a 2 to 2.5 mile walk almost everyday, in the cool of the night. I live in Tucson, so I avoid the heat this way.

I have my own Blog for my business, but I generally avoid writing about my personal life. I have been wanting to write about my recent weight gain after I started walking in April. I have gained 15 pounds since then, and at 55 that’s not a good thing.

I just returned from a doctor visit and that’s when I discovered I had gained another ten pounds in 7 weeks. I wanted to cry. My doctor suggested exercising twice daily he also said avoid carbs… I’m Irish and I love my spuds. My blood work was not good with everything way too high. I really do eat fairly healthy, I just eat a lot. I exchanged sodas for OJ and I love fruit. I just plain like to eat.

My blood sugar was 109, and I have family history of trouble in this area. The cholesterol is 190, and of course I hate fish. So, I am taking fish oil supplements. I have decided to forgo rice and pasta for now!

That’s my story… I gotta go and run a business and wipe the tears away first. I really needed this!

Thanks, for letting me share… Finding your website is one of the perks of my job…
