I have been on this journey all of my life. Always overweight, my mother was overweight, and an emotional eater, and she taught me to be just like her.

Now I am a mother with two daughters of my own who struggle with their weight. Both have ventured out into the world and struggle with their own weight issues.
I have three grandchildren who I adore and I want to be around for a long time for.
I have been overweight all my life. I also have type two diabetes. I once took insulin at night and insulin at every meal and due to lifestyle and sedentary practices I should be taking it again.

When I began using Spark people back in 2006 I weighed over 330 lbs, I am not sure of the exact weight because my scale wouldn't register any more than that. I went from a size 32/30 to a weight of 210 wearing a size 18. Recently I have gained 70 pounds and am beginning to worry about the tightning of my clothes. In addition, my sugar levels are back up. Actually they are higher than ever, 6 months ago they were over 600 consistently then the Dr put me on Bydureon. My sugars came down to the 200 range, but I couldnt seem to get them under that, well to be honest I was still eating all the foods I loved, just not as much. No Wonder.
I have a network of wonderfully supportive friends who I hope will join me on my weight loss trail. I had hoped to be closer to my goal weight of 199.

I would love to step on the scale and see a weight that I havent seen since I was 14 years old.

I promised myself I wouldnt update this page until I had been counting calories for a week as I have failed before, but I am proud to say I have been counting for a week and drinking 2 Kevita's (a Probotic drink) everyday and I cant believe what a difference it is making in my life.

My Goals:
My first goal would be to reach 199. I can remember the day I hit 200. I was in my best friends bathroom and I stepped on the scale. I was 14 and had no idea what I could do!

I also want to walk into a normal sized clothing store and buy something. I have been shopping at plus shops all my life, and I would love love to feel normal.

My Program:
Watching what I eat, drinking plenty of water, and working out...
