I started gaining weight aft er my second child. I believe I was 140 back then. I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 about 1986 and have been overweight ever since. I was up to 260 about 18 years ago. but I have lost about 57 lbs since then.
Have you struggled with weight issues all your life or just in adulthood?
For me it has really just been in adulthood. As a child I was always underweight due to my diabetes and as a teen I thought I was fat, but I was really hin! I really gained once I went back to college at about age 30!

To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. ~Henri Bergson
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Author Unknown
