Gotta do it...

Hello I am Laura, I live in SW Florida, I have been overweight for as long as i can remember. Due to being overweight for far to long I have diabetes, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, kidney problems, infertility issues, and on and on.

In October of 2011 I was diagnosed with Diabetic Retinopathy. I went blind in both eyes.I was unable to watch TV, play on the computer, read, drive, write, work and pretty much go outside at all. This is a real life changed.

Hello I am Laura, I live in SW Florida, I have been overweight for as long as i can remember. Due to being overweight for far to long I have diabetes, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, kidney problems, infertility issues, and on and on.

In October of 2011 I was diagnosed with Diabetic Retinopathy. I went blind in both eyes.I was unable to watch TV, play on the computer, read, drive, write, work and pretty much go outside at all. This is a real life changed.

My life changing event: I just got married on May 5th. I had not realized how horrible I looked until I saw my wedding photos and videos. When I got them back I decided it was time to change.

It is now time for it to all be gone!

Update: Jan 2016

Bad news first I am now on hemodialysis due to the diabetes.
Good news I have lost 110 lbs and off all medications (17 pills a day) and all insulin (4 shots a day). I am healthier than I ever have been.

Hi Laura!
Thanks for your message on my page! I know how it feels when the motivation runs dry. Have you tried to list all the things that you will gain from losing weight and maybe keeping that list with you at all times to remind you what you can expect if you stick to your plan?
I hope you will get your motivation back! emoticon
I'm ok, the nausea is not as bad as it was and I'm slowly starting to excersise again, which feels great :)!
Let's keep in touch!

Hi Laura, hows it going? Winning those sweet prizes from the competition at work, I assume :)!
I have been a little busy with moving, but I am here again and it is going good :)! Keep up the good work!

Hey Laura!
So sorry to hear about your problems with the health insurance! I hope you get them sorted soon. I think it is so counterproductive that people have to battle with the insurance, because the stress that it causes is a big factor in many diseases, me thinks.
13 lbs down in you first month in SP, that is GREAT! Keep up the good work and win those prizes from the work project! What is the first assignment?
