Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am 36 years old, looking to finally be as healthy and fit as I can be. It's been a struggle up and down to lose the weight, been big my whole life. But after losing both my parents to complications from diabetes, and with me being diabetic as well, it's time I take full control of my life. No one can make me lose weight, no one but me. So, it's time for me to make the change in my life. I was 340 pounds when I was 32. Now I'm 211, but I still have about 50 pounds to go. It won't be easy, but life would be boring if it was easy!
My goal is to lose an additional 50 pounds, allowing me to be about 160 pounds. I also want to be the best furbaby mom that any Corgi doggy could ever have!

Hi there! I just read your post in the diet and nutrition forum where you asked how you could better control your carbohydrate intake. I just wanted to drop by your page to wish you luck, and to offer my support if you ever need it.
I used to have diet controlled diabetes (Gestational Diabetes, it is very similar to type 2 diabetes but passes after gestation is done), and I know how much better I felt after I got my carbohydrates under control. I used to eat 6 small meals spread out throughout the day with 20-30 g of complex carbohydrates in each, and I am back with that program again now trying to loose some weight.
You can do this!

I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
