It has been hard to face the fact that something is going to take me, and it could be a stroke
. BUT, if I don't exercise, and I get fat, it could just as easily be diabetes or a heart
attack or depression. I listen to my body so much more now, and I guess maybe I am taking a chance, but deep down, I believe that fitness saved my life in the first place ("we usually find this in an autopsy") and that staying fit (carefully) is the best thing I can do live a long happy life.
