I'm 52 with type 2 diabetes. I broke a hip in a bicycle accident in June of 2010. In June of 2011, my Dr. recommended weight-reduction surgery because of my diabetes arthritis, and hip injury. This is my attempt to lose the weight without subjecting myself to that surgery.

My Goals:
My long-term goal is to weigh 185lbs. by 9/01/2012. This will mean losing a total of 125lbs. in 14 months!

My Program:
My program includes exercise, holding my intake below 2340 cal. I have been somewhat successful when logging my food before, but don't really like that chore. Consistency in doing that will be a key for me.

Hi Carl, Just wanted to welcome you to the gardening team, and tell you to stop by the backyard fence and join us in our chatting. I'd also like to invite you to join the diabetes team I'm one of the leaders for. It's for folks over 50 who would like to lose 50 lbs. or more. There's lots of support on both teams. The diabetic team is a private team, so you would have to let me know you are interested, so I can "let" you in. But we'd love to have you join us, offer our support, and make a new friend! Good luck on your journey to better health.

Hi carl...thank you for adding me to your friends. I will help encourage you in any way I can. I would love to see you not have to have the surgery. There is a lot of information on Spark about diabetes. We would love to share your journey. You may want to think about blogging your journey. Then others can respond and help. See you soon on the Gardening Team. Good luck...Joan
