I am 59 years old and will be 60 in three months. I weigh about 265 lbs. and have a lot of medical problems. They are low thyroid, hyinal hernia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, type 2 diebetic, acid reflex, and I am afraid I might have or will have knee problems. I need to lose weight badly, because I am the third generation of my Grandparents on my mothers side, which my mother made to age 60. My Grandfather died at 51 with congestive heart failure, his wife 55 with congestive heart failure, and my Mother 60 with congestive heart failure. So this is important to me that I break the so called "curse". I want to watch both of my grandchildren graduate from high school and more.
