Regulating Efficacy and Wellness in Diabetes (REWinD)
The propose of the study is to test the hypothesis that an eight week program consisting of walking exercise and social cognitive theory based group workshops will increase physical activity adherence six months later in older adults with type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.

- Physical Activity [ Time Frame: Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Change from baseline to month six in physical activity. Participants will wear an accelerometer to measure physical activity.
- Self-efficacy [ Time Frame: Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]We will assess changes in self-efficacy by written questionnaires.
- Executive function [ Time Frame: Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Participants will complete a neuropsychological battery of tasks assessing memory, attention and decision-making at baseline and month six.
- Self-regulatory strategy use [ Time Frame: Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]We will assess changes in self-regulatory strategy use by written questionnaires.
- Physical function [ Time Frame: Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]We will conduct functional fitness testing including tests of balance, strength, mobility and flexibility at baseline and six months.
- Psychosocial outcomes [ Time Frame: Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]We will assess changes in psychosocial function ( e.g. self-esteem; social support; anxiety) by written questionnaires.

|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Walking exercise
Participants will be instructed in safe walking exercise. They will participate in an eight week, tapered, on-site program. Participants will also attend group workshops where they will learn self-regulatory skills such as goal-setting, self-monitoring, barrier trouble-shooting, rewarding, and relapse prevention and recovery.
|Behavioral: Walking exercise|
Active Comparator: Metabolic health education
Participants will complete an eight-week online metabolic health education course. Topics will include glucose control, insulin, weight management, nutrition, physical activity, eye/kidney/foot health, stress reduction, and doctor-patient communication.
