Hi I am a 53 year old Mother of three and grandmother of four. Wow isn't it amazing how we define ouselves through others. A year ago i was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I admit after each baby i gained 20 lbs so 60 lbs after the third baby that i found next to impossible to budge..but i was active and this did not bother me till my diabetes i amserious I want this weight off and off for good...

Also my third child my only son was born 17 weeks premature and to be honest the first few years when we did not know if each illness meant we would lose him forever made me a stress eater..comfort foods that made me feel better temporarily . Well lets say a few extra pounds got packed on then, I tipped the scales at 200 to be exact and over this past year I have managed to budge 9 of those pounds off with the help of my nutrionist and not had them to come back and haunt me. I especially crave those chocolate covered marshmallow biscuits when feeling stress with the raspberry goooood but so bad for me.

The other thing is my son is autistic and has a condition that is defined by the intials PVL and is amouthful to say so to say stress is no longer part of my life be a lie but those cookies are (hopefully).
