Drink more water, get more exercise and curb the late night snack attacks.
I currently live and work in San Francisco. I have a B.A. in English with a focus in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, though I'm still not quite sure what I plan on using it for.
I've seen Bob Dylan live in concert nearly 40 times and two of my favorite contemporary authors are David Sedaris and Sarah Vowell.
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! Anita
