December 4, 2010 Update

Hi, I am 43 years old, married, mother of 1 teenage son. I work in a medical office. I have lost and gained weight most of my life. Four years ago I thought I had changed my lifestyle forever (including running a 10 km and walk/running a 1/2 marathon) and would never gain the weight back, it only took a one week illness to start falling back into my old habits, now two years later I am back at the start again. I am determined to get healthy again and desperately want to prevent diabetes which both my parents were diagnosed with in their 50s, not to mention heart disease which my father suffers from.
