Hi everyone, I'm Mandy. I turned 39 back in August and I'm telling you, something hit me bad. I thought the 40 mark would be the one I struggled with, but something happened to me as the days crept up on my 39th. I realized how much I had let myself go. How heavy I had gotten. How out of shape I was. I had gone to the doctors for a check up and he did some lab work. Yada yada yada, I'm obese (knew that!) and officially pre-diabetic (yikes!). Got the "big warning" that I'm fast running out of time to do something about it. All of that combined was my wake up call. I want to be around for a long time, and be healthy! I'm a little over 1 week into Spark People and so far so good! I love that I find support everywhere I turn! Through inspirational stories, to the message boards, to blogs! Love it! Looking forward to making some spark friends and hopefully being an inspiration to someone else someday, too! Good luck to us all!
