I've known for a long time that being overweight would increase my chances of developing high blood pressure and diabetes (which both run in my family). Well, now I have them both and I will lose this weight in order to live longer.

6/17/08 - Update: Diabetes is reversed after 3 months! My doctor said to just keep doing what I'm doing and they'll check bloodwork every 3 months. This is the best news I could have gotten. SP has made all the difference for me.

Thanks so much for the post. I was born in Ohio and my family moved to Colorado when I was 10. All of my extended family still lives in Ohio (central) and we try to make it back to visit as often as we can (we were back last July). I am an avid OSU football fan. I get real cranky if the stations out here don't cover the games!! Thanks for the invite to buddy, I need all the accountability & encouragement I can get. I'll chat with you soon.

GO BUCKS!!!

Just seen your note on "Is anyone having or did have a similar experience?" and wanted to come by and congratulate you for a job well done!

You look amazing, but more importantly, your diabetes has reversed itself! emoticon

You have a lovely looking family.
