Home from work,

Still light to out lurk,

My bike tuned up today,

Rode yesterday & this day…

 

I am looking forward to riding,

Out on the road, my time I’m biding,

I need to work up to that,

Maybe by the summer I won’t be as fat…

 

I come home tired,

Instead of sleeping, I ride,

Only maybe a mile, not much,

But exercise is the key,

To help to keep my diabetes a bit more under control,

Love again to be staying with my bike in touch…

Ed is riding with style,

No he won't feel a mile,

So he'll be alright now,

J.D. is wearing a smile!

Go for it, my friend. Well done.

Yep, exercise is the key, Ed, but the second key is every day. Every day. Each day make the ride just a little bit further. Back away from the table some. I lost eighty pounds when I first learned I had diabetes. I did it by portion control, leaving off eating what I wasn't supposed to and walking every day. When I started on the diet and walking I weighted almost 300 pounds. These days I weigh in the 172 range give a few pounds either way. Haven't felt better in years. You can do it, Ed.
