I want to lose enough weight to control my type 2 diabetes with diet and exercise only.
I want to lose a total of 130 pounds.
I want to increase my self esteem and self confidence.
I want to exercise at least 4 days a week.
I am working on cutting way back on carbs, eating lots of veggies and some fruits. I dont want to go hog wild on a strict very low carb diet....I dont do well with such strict rules!
My name is Julie and I have 2 great kids. I have had type 2 diabetes for a few years. I am a nursing student working towards my doctorate in the hopes that I will be a nurse practitioner one day. I need to lose this weight so that I am taken seriously by my future patients. I want to be a role model to them.
Nice to see another WI person! I am transplanted to NJ--still miss "God's country" and still hate the NJ Jets/Giants/Yankees/Mets, etc. Give me the Packers and the Badgers any day!! And now Rutgers thinks they will be Big 10--they will always be Big 10 wanna-bes! While I'd love to watch WI beat them, I will not give Rutgers any $$!!
Anyway--saw you were a WI gal and just wanted to say hi!
