Hi everybody, I'm new to this site. I was shown this site by my daughter LaRaine on my mothers 95th birthday (Jan. 30), so I thought I would give it a try myself.
I've been heavy every since I recovered from polio in 1952, since then I have tried all kinds of different diets to no avail.

Hi everybody, I'm new to this site. I was shown this site by my daughter LaRaine on my mothers 95th birthday (Jan. 30), so I thought I would give it a try myself.
I've been heavy every since I recovered from polio in 1952, since then I have tried all kinds of different diets to no avail.
In 2001 I was told that I had type 2 diabetes and that I should lose weight. (easier said than done for me now that I was retired). I did manage to go from a starting weight of 315 lbs. to 281 by summer of 2006. In Nov. of 2006 I got sick and was hospitalized for 3 days, I came home and was sick for another month in which time I had lost about 20 lbs. So when I started this weight program I weighed 263, and as of today I'm down to 253. My goal is to be down to 225 by my 68th birthday in November.
