Hi! I'm Sue. I am 52, have diabetes and several associated complications.
I joined Spark People in 2009 when I was unemployed and did very well. I lost 29 pounds and gained alot of energy. Then I went back to work full time. I kept many good habits such as wearing a pedometer daily, parking a distance from building entryways so I could walk longer distances, starting the day with a healthy breakfast, and choosing vegetarian options during the day.
My problem continues to be the evenings - I toss all of the progress I've made during the day and eat to feel full. Plus sugar has become an important part of my evening routine. I've gained 13 pounds and want to turn the trend in the right direction.
I decided to come back to Spark People where I felt accepted for who I am, in order to combat my carbohydrate demons. Wish me luck!
