Hello my name is Vanessa from OHIO I have been married 8 years and have 2 little girls Olivia And Anastasia 5 and soon to be three. I just found out I have HIGH Estrogen HIGH Insulin and LOW thyroid and the doctor has put me on a 1,200cal diet a day. I have cut out all pasta and I eat very little bread. They put me on Metforin a Diabetics medication to try to get the Insulin to break down and be evenly distributed. I have so far in one week on this 1,200 cal diet lost 10.5 Lb I am now 252lbs and my goal weight for August 11-August 12 is to get to 165lb in one year. I KNOW that's a BIG jump in numbers but I AM going to do it~! Please do feel free to email me , add me as a friends ...I need all the support I can get :O). Hugs, Vanessa
