An acquaintance of ours has received a wake up call from their doctor. He recently went to the doctor and found out he is close to becoming diabetic. His diet is not the greatest and he hardly exercises. He was overweight, but not extremely overweight.
Hopefully, he will take his doctor's news seriously and make some lifestyle changes. Nothing too drastic at first. Get up and move. Start walking during the day. Use portion control. Cut out liquid calories. Start with these first and he will see some changes.
I remember when my dad received the same kinds of news. He changed his entire lifestyle and dropped over 50 pounds and even ran a half marathon.
You can do it!!!
