Occupation: Motor Vehicle Manager

What is your motivation to be healthy?: My two young daughters, 18 months and 4 years. My father's family has a history of heart disease & diabetes.

In fact, I just lost my father to complications from diabetes in February of this year at the age of 66. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes less than a month before his passing. Knowing the pain and loss that I felt, I will do whatever I can do to spare my daughters that experience. I also have sleep apnea and have used a C-Pap for more than a decade.
