    May your joys be as deep as the oceans
    Your troubles as light as its foam
    And may you find sweet peace of mind
    Wherever you roam

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    I'm 70 and I found Ward Dean M.D. who is 78 and an anti-aging doctor. I had struggled with my weight since I was 13 as I had PCOS but back in '62 no one talked about it. Finally after I fainted at school from such severe cramps, they took me to the doctor and he put me on birth control pills, but then I really fought to not gain weight. The cycles were regular and the acne cleared up, but the only way I kept from getting fat was to eat just once a day; now that is called "intermittent fasting" and is the big rage. I gained 60# with my first child at 25, since I ate, but I nursed him and got it off, but by age 41 and my fifth child I was 214#. I joined Sparks at age 58 at 214# and struggled to get to 186# so 3 yrs ago I saw a doctor and asked to get on Metformin. He said "At your age you can't expect to lose wt. since you have Metabolic Syndrome." My blood sugar was 115 and he said "You don't need Metformin since diabetes starts at 126." So I found out about Dr. Dean (he has videos on youtube and one is about Metformin).
    He said read the Metformin insert, which said "IF you might become a Type 2 diabetic you can start the medicine now." I have lost 50# and kept it off for over 2 yrs. I was so sick the first month I took it, but I dropped 20# that first month since I had 10# of swelling in my legs."
    I recommend finding a good doctor who understands old people. Dr. Dean thinks everyone should be on Metformin as diabetes ruins your body (even pre-diabetes.) I still want to take off another 15# and I will.
