Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some days. Slow and steady wins the race, though.

My other big health challenge is, obviously, my weight. As of this morning {6/13/14}, I weigh 268.2 by my home scale. That's down 23 lbs from my all time highest weight of 291. I've been stuck in pretty much the same weight range for a couple years, but I'm ready and motivated to get the scale going the right way.

I think that covers the basics about me. If anyone has any questions, just ask!

    Hey Cat!
    Wanted to tell you that I finally weighed myself today as my DH got the scale fixed for was over two years since I had weighed in...I lost 45 more pounds! A total of 88.6! And a grand total of 152, as I lost weight before joining Spark! This has been a lot of determination and working around many obstacles! I still want to lose another 60-65 pounds! I sure hope that won't take another two years but if it does, it does!
    Also, DH is finally going to a new psychiatrist tomorrow...I hope with a better diagnosis and medication things will go better! Think good thoughts!
    Miss you! How ya doing?
