Hi and welcome! I am excited that you are here and hope that you can accomplish your goals! My situation is similar to yours. I am in the beginning stages of insuline resistance and have a thyroid condition. For a long time I used that as an excuse that my body wasn't working so why put the effort into dieting. But more recently I lost some weight only to gain it all back proving that I had no excuses!
I am in for the long haul too! If you need encouragement or an accountability friend let me know. Best wishes to you and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Rachel

Hi my name is Mary Ann. I live in Michigan. I am starting with a goal to lose 55lbs by April 2013. I tried several diets where I lost 20lbs then gained it right back, not reaching my goal. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I am very exited to find spark people to help me through this journey to lose weight and get my diabetes under control.
