Type II diabetic, 65 yr old retired government employee living in West Tennessee.

I have had a weight problem all my life. I have been on several diet plans including some very sensible ones and some really absurd ones.

I could have been in a better financial shape in my retirement but I chose to spend unbelievable amounts of money over the years in my quest to loose weight without having to put out any effort. Finally realized it just doesn't work that way. I would loose the weight but could not maintain the loss. My best friend introduced me to Spark People and I am finally beginning to accomplish not only loosing weight but becoming healthier by controlling my blood sugar levels.

I am not fond of exercising (really I just hate it). Due to back problems, I am unable to walk for any distance therefore, I walk up and down the long hall in my house.
