A NEW BEGINNING!

At one time I weighed 288 lbs. I might have weighed more but was afraid to admit it to even myself. I did have the thought of reaching the Goal of 300 lbs! (Only because I was so close, and I thought it kind of a funny thing to do.) I could not even carry the 288 lbs so, I had to lose. About four times, in the past 30 years, I have gone down to 203 lbs, but I have not gone under 200 lbs.

I started to lose again, two months before joining Sparks, and I weighed 250 lbs, and I ...

About four times, in the past 30 years, I have gone down to 203 lbs, but I have not gone under 200 lbs.

I started to lose again, two months before joining Sparks, and I weighed 250 lbs, and I started Sparks at 232 lbs.

I started to lose again, because I am Officially labeled, and am a Diabetic now since 2003, and probably like most, was Diabetic many years before that.

In 2010 - 2014, I was Out Of Control! My sugar numbers were going over 200 most every night. When my morning fasting number hit 224..that was the day I said, "No more!" said it again when another year it hit 238 in the morning. I didn't feel good, but didn't feel that bad either. During these years my weight went as high again as 232. Same old up and down.

If I want to live, and in one piece, I Have to Change! I am going down once again, once again I am going to try and do good every day.

I Can't wait any longer! (Again)
I want to live Well for the remainder of my years.
I don't want to be FAT any longer.
I want to be a Diabetic in Total Control.
I want to LIVE, and with all the pieces I have now.
I Don't take any medicines, and I don't/won't ever start.
I am Fired up and Determined to do something Now!
.....Yes Again... but Again ... I AM TRYING REAL HARD!

emoticon for having your painting chosen to hang in the Governor's building. You must be VERY PROUD!

I don't know if you're getting these comments I'm sending. I sure hope so!

Hi Slimmer, Dahlonega just made national news on NBC because of your bad weather. I hope everything is going OK with you. I'll be watching Gen Chat for you to check in so we'll know you're alright.

Take care,
Grace
