Good for you! Those non-weight improvements are a great step toward better health and a more active, productive life. Just remember to focus on taking care of yourself with proper diet and exercise - and the weight will come off when your body is ready. It's about you and what's best for you, not how much you weigh!

You don't get what you want. You get what you work for.
One choice at a time.
Itís a journey, not a race.
Celebrate something every day.
Donít let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Hello. I am a 38 year old mother of two. I have been struggling with my weight since age 19. I have been on every diet including lap band surgery. I have never been consistent or successful at weight loss despite having surgery. I have never exercised and watched my caloric intake for more than 3 months. Last year I reached my highest weight of 294 and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I have decided that I won't be defeated by obesity and the diseases that come along with it. My weight loss has been slow, only lost 20 pounds since February, but I have other off scale successes such as lower blood sugars and increased energy.
With the help of spark people....I am determined to get it right this time!
I can do All Things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.
