I had a similar wake-up call when I had to go on cholesterol medicine due to my weight. I still have a long way to go, but I'm making progress and have gone off meds and able to regulate with food/diet/exercise. (Thanks to SP! )
Hello! My name is Isma and I am new to SparkPeople. I have made two blog entries, but I just saw today where I need to introduce myself. I am very excited about this site and the potential support it can offer. I have 100 pounds to loose and it truly is a challenge. But, at the end of last year I was diagnosed as being insulin resistant and my Doctor told me that I am on my way to Diabetes. Both my Mother and my Father in law contracted Type 2 Diabetes late in life and I don't want it to happen to me. So, this is the being of my journal. It is already proving to be a wonderful adventure!
