My name is Roy Miller. Welcome to my site. I am 61 years old, and have been working in the construction industry for 42 years.
I have struggled with being overweight for most of my life since High School. I had a heart attack and at the same time found out that I was a diabetic. Fortunately for me, I only had to have a stent installed. At the time of my heart attack, my blood sugar was 320, and my A1C was over 12. Normal blood sugar is under 100, and normal A1C is 5.6. Needless to say, both my cardioligist and endocrinologist said that I would have to make some lifestyle changes if I wanted to live a longer life. I also weighed 295 lbs. at the time.
I made those changes and got my weight down to 205 lbs. and my A1C to 5.6. Unfortunately, I started creeping back to my old habits, and got my weight back up to 230 lbs. I realized the I had to make some changes to improve my health, as well as prolong my life.
I took the "24 Day Challenge", and started on my way back to a healthy weight.
