Hi, I am also 53 years of age with no children. I live alone with type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension and depression, and had three back surgeries last year and currently have a compression fracture of L3. I am also trying desperately to lose weight and was doing pretty good until I had to go on insulin 4 times a day and then I started gaining back the weight that I had lost. I live in Western Nebraska in a very small town where there isn't a lot to do. I presently am also having pain in my knee. It is very important for me to lose weight so know where you are coming from. I want to welcome you and wish you well in what you are doing. We are here to help each other. If I can be of help see my blog and will be happy to help with whatever I can do. Kathy
current weight: 225.2

to the team. Also diagnosed with Diabetes 2, but believe with all my heart that this is not permit and intend to get healthy and off medication. As for the liver disease, what has your doctor been doing for you, my mother is having problems but the doctor really has nothing but lower her cholesterol medication which she finally just stop taking a couple of weeks ago. I have her taking milk thistle,and told her to get lemons and squeeze 1 to 2 lemons a day into her water. When my liver functions were off last year, for a month had two lemons a day, squeezed the juice into my glass of water and then ate the pulp, but I always have eaten lemons.
