Just read your article "I Thought I'd Always Be Fat." I, too, come from an obese family. But when I joined SparkPeople and started monitoring my food intake, several years ago, I quit after a few weeks because I was "starving." However, in August 2014 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. At that point I received real instructions and began working towards a healthy lifestyle. It has been almost a year now since my diagnosis, and I have currently lost 98 pounds. I feel better than ever and I am not starving myself. But with the SparkPeople nutrition counters, I am able to keep up with my calorie and carb intake, which is now how I am treating my diabetes. No oral diabetes pill, never graduated to insulin. Lifestyle changes (not diet) and exercise changed my life forever!
