Hi all. I'm new to Spark People so I'm still navigating my way around. I still have to figure out how to add my picture! :) I'm a chronic yoyo dieter. My typical weight loss every time I diet is around 30-35 pounds. I then hit a plateau for a month and lose my motivation. I sincerely hope I can find a buddy to help me (and I'll help support in return) so we can both be successful together. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 5 years ago when I complained of constant pain and anxiety. Some days are worse than others but I really try to work through it with grace. I have 2 children, a 9 year old daughter and a 6 year old son who are my livelihood so I really can't feel too sorry for myself for too long! I hope all is well with everyone here.
PASTEELER, I'm sorry you were diagnosed with diabetes. My mother and father both have Type 2 diabetes and I see what they go through. My mother is getting a gastric bypass operation within the next few months so I hope that will help her lose the weight she needs.
Diana, I will also join that challenge in a month maybe.. I want to do things gradually.
Need to break my yoyo dieting cycle!!
