Good evening to all. I hope everyone that celebrated the 4th of July today had a wonderful time, and stayed safe.
My name is Timothy, but most people call me Tim. I can't post on here what my wife calls me, nor some of my friends. I've been on Spark off and on for the past 3 years or so. I've been away this time for several months, and decided it was time to get up out of my recliner, and take control of myself.
I've struggled with weight all of my life. I weighed 10 lbs. 2 oz. when I was born. Yeah, go ahead and say it..."your poor mother". You're right!! I started out in this world heavy. After 43 years, soon to be 44, I do believe it's about time I did something about it.
After several threats from my doctors about diabetes, "You need to take control now, young man, or you're going to develop diabetes.." What do they know?...they're just doctors...was my thought. Well.....4 years ago, the unwanted guest moved in my body. I'm a Type 2 and am on Metformin...supposed to be on Metformin. I haven't been taking it, nor have I been checking my blood sugar. That's why I decided to join this team....hoping for support, finding some friends that I can relate to, and confide in.
But....anyway....I'm here, and hope to get to know as many of you as I can, and develop a Sparking friendship as well. I'm here for the support and all, but, I give back in return!
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
