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 200.5 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. 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!

    u are doing great, soon shopping will be an adventure and a joy..
    I do talk a lot, but its from knowledge of myself or with others,,
    Have enough info, I could write a book and be 129 lbs (like the doc wants)
    -
    keep on , keeping on,,,,,,, this was a mantra given to me yrs ago and I thought , what a good thought to have on a wallet card on a little wall thingy..--but I did neither, but I do pass the words on,
    Today, I filed bags of clothes for S,Army, mostly new, still with tags----they were purchased ummm around 10 yrs ago==
    They were all toooooo small, better to share ....
    -
    Yes, I learned the hard way, take the lbs off and keep moving , as a little is better than nothing at all,,
    Like yourself, I am back trying to keep walking and enjoying life.
    ==
    Like I mentioned, I love to chat and I listen , emoticon

    Hi Slimmer,

    Thank you so much for your supportive comments about Melvin. I think "closure" won't come until I get back to CT and then feel the big "void" in my life, since I used to spend many hours a week with him. Then I can move on.

    Take care,
    Grace

    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!
