Personal Information:
My name is Bernadette. I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I now live just north east of the city. I have 3 amazing children ages 28, 30, and 32. I manage a Tim Hortons - so some days it's a challenge not to give in to all the temptations!

Other Information:
I first got serous about my weight when my doctor informed me that I was now diabetic. The doctor told me I had a choice - lose weight or be on medication for the rest of my life. I chose lose weight.
I've managed to lose enough that I was no longer considered diabetic. I took that as licence to go back to my old ways and have paid the price. I since put back 39 lbs and have lived to regret it. Life goes on, though, and it's time to get serious again. You'd think going back on medication and everything else that goes along with diabetes would be enough for me to motivate me but this time it just isn't. I'm joining the summer 5% challenge .and I hope it will get me back on track
