Hello out there... My name is Beth I am from the Birmingham area Alabama. I would LOVE to find locals to chat with and maybe meet up with once a month or something.
I have been a diabetic since 2004.... it has never been under control. I don't have insurance and our health department charges per visit... they will not see me anymore until my bill is paid in full. My family is in a dire financial situation... we can't pay bills much less have extras for doctor visits so that I can get my meds. Spark People is going to help me save my life... and it is already happening.
All that being said I LOVE my spark friends. I have also lost 8 pounds. I have had ups and serious downs as well as good and bad weeks of eating. I am guessing this is pretty normal on a long journey like this. I have never done anything that totally changed my life and eating like this, nor have had ever been on a place like this that helped so much.
I am married and have 2 sons... one in college and one is going to be a senior in high school this fall. We currently have 4 dogs and a cat.... we are trying to find new homes for 2 of our dogs due to my husbands medical condition.
I personally would like to lose at least another 52 pounds..... I am not sure that will happen because of my age and my body changes through the years after having 2 children..... my husband and son say they think I will be "to skinny" at that weight. Honestly the last time I was that weight I think I was 13... I am now 43. *LOL* They might be right, but I think I will let God decide over the next year.
So here I am... ready, willing and able...to give and get all support and encouragement
