My name is Barb I am 59 and have a son that is 25, I love this place because it has the tools that will get and keep me healthy. I Actually started Feb 9, 2009 weighing 400.4 I weigh in on Tuesdays. I lost some and then gained up to 410. I totally quit dieting and started a my own method of eating. You can find it on facebook (
ThePlate?ref=tn_tnmn) I don't use the containers much now. But I am still losing without going without the things I love.

I use to tell my doctor that I was addicted to sugar. I tried to get into groups for addicts. I tried everything I could to quit but I just couldn't. I ate sugar and white food all the time. Huge bowls of potatoes, or rice. I loved to nuke a container of ice cream and eat it in one setting. The only veggie I liked was cauliflower and then fried in margarine. I would eat till I was full and eat some more. Then my doctor told me I had tipped the Diabetic scale. My blood sugar was above 200. Something about that day turned me around. Probably fear of needles. My doctor says I probably will never need insulin but I don't want to take any chances. So, I got on the net and researched diabetes. I found two sites that I use to go to everyday. This one of course and

I don't come here much any more because I don't like to surround my life with the thought of losing weight. But I do miss you guys, especially RedBubbles. You have been a real trouper. Hang in there lady.

    Hi Barb,
    Thanks for the sparkgoodie. I have to say it has been a really strange year, in Feb I had surgery to repair a hernia and I gained weight from that which put me back over 300, then the lump in the breast and I ended up being referred outside the Virginia Mason system because I exceeded the weight limit for their machines (which was 300) so I had to travel 72 miles to get the biopsy done. So now I am trying to get back on the wagon and get active again, and make sure I eat enough. That seems to be the kicker, I lost three pounds because I was stress eating along with all the activity I did. So I need to make sure I track my calorie intake more closely.

    Congrats on your weight loss - you look great.
