Hi, I will be 49 on 12/01/11, have diabetes, have a total of 110 pounds to loose....and after a few months feel already so much healthier!!!.....Hopefully I can do this with the help of all my wonderful spark friends.

In 2006 I had thyroid cancer and had to have my whole thyroid removed and have to balance my thyroid hormones purely on meds. That is a life long battle and completely messes up your metabolism and can make you depressed. If I can do this...so can YOU! ... What ...

My Goals:
I would like to be heatlhy and not have diabetes anymore. I have to reach my goal weight of 170 at least to hopefully make this happen. I'm 5'11" and that would bring me to a normal BMI.

05/28/10 Met one of my goals - got off insulin...yeah!

07/30/10 Got off another diabetes med....woohoo!!!

Start 280 - 3/19/10
Goals met:
#1 Goal 260 - 06/13/10
#2 Goal 250 - 08/15/10
#3 Goal 240 - 11/19/11 !!!
#4 Gaol 230
#5 Goal 220
#6 Goal 210
#7 Goal 200
#8 Goal 190
#9 Goal 180
#10 Goal 170

The final reward will be something from Victoria's Secret :)

My Program:
I am on the GI Diet, which is good for diabetics. I track my food every day and try to stay within the allowed calories but have a hard time with it. I exercise 30 - 60 mins 7 times a week. I'm trying to loose 2 pounds every week. We'll see if this works.......Wish me luck!

Personal Information:
I'm 47 and a mother of 2 grown boys. I live in Brevard County in East Central Florida. Been a single mom since 1998 and food has been my friend all these years. On March 19, 2010 I was told that I needed to add insulin injections to my meds. That was my AHA moment to make major changes in my life.

05/28/10 Update - My doc told me I don't have to be on insulin anymore. Eating healthy and exercising paid off!

Other Information:
I can use a good buddy for support.
