Time to update my page. I joined SparkPeople in Jan 2009 after being diagnosed with diabetes and hypothyroid and high cholestrol and all the other stuff that goes with it. I was at my all time high weightwise and my all time low for everything else. My Dr told me to walk...and I could not make it to the mailbox without resting. But I started out slowly...and lost 90 pounds and walk 2+ miles. My bloodwork is all normal and I feel better than I have in a long long time.
We like to cruise, but this year I ate too much and exercied too little, and came home 15 pounds heavier. Plus had gained 5 in Dec.
So it is time to get going again.
I have a friend who weighs 123 pounds...that is my goal, to lose Dorothy.
