I am looking for a better, healthier lifestyle - This isn't about anyone or anything else but a pure desire to live a better life.

UPDATE January 3, 2013:
I wrote that above almost in definance. I have been on Sparkpeople in the past and as soon as I try to start making MY program look like and be what others tell me it should look like and be, I fail. This time, while I appreciate input from other members, please don't take it personal if I don't follow your advice. I can't make this about anyone but me...NO ONE!

I am not a selfish person at all and this has gotten me to where I am today. I tend to take care of others and make my life look like what others want it to look like...pretty soon I lose 'me' in the process of pleasing everyone else.

I am 51 years old with diabetes, melabotic syndrome, and insuline resistance. I take pills for high blood pressure, cholestrol, and diabetes. It is way past time that I do something about my life...before I don't have a life to consider! Sounds dramatic, but I'm truly fighting to be the person I know I am inside, and can be going forward.

I would love to connect with people, I find that helps a lot...so please message me if you are willing to work together in 2013!
