We are ages 65 and 67. We have been married for 46 years. Last year I was diagnosed with type two diabetes. Being a retired Greensboro Firefighter I have been active most of my life. After retiring I let myself go physically. This was a wake up call. My A1C was at 7.8. Jane and I started an exercise program at the Spears YMCA. After one year, I lost 35 pounds and my A1C was down to 5.8. My doctor sent me a nice letter of congratulations. Working out as a couple is a motivating factor. On some days I did not want to go and Jane motivated me to go, other days I motivated her. She still looks great for her age, I think I am going to keep her. The staff at Spears are always nice and helpful. We enjoy meeting new friends at the YMCA.
