My grown daughter and I have been walking with my three dogs daily, rain, shine, snow or sleet. I have lost 15 pounds and my daughter has lost 18 pounds and even our dogs are looking trimmer.

I have been a Type 2 diabetic for 15 years. I am under control at the present time, but I still need to lose weight. I also suffer from depression since the death of my husband, sister and brother all within the past 10 years.

I also have high blood pressure and am taking medication for all my conditions. I hate to exercise and sometimes eat the wrong foods, but with the help of my daughter, I think I can lose weight and stop taking medications altogether.
