Here it goes, this is the time. I have already lost so much since starting this journey but I will lose the rest(Yes I gained a few back after losing track of what I needed to do).With type two diabetes and very high cholesterol I have no choice but to do something. I want to see my kids grow up and I am tired of playing games with my health. I have been hitting the gym and it really is a new addiction for me, i love it.I have two children, Tyler who is 11 years and Ashlie who is 20 years old and I want to have more energy for me and them so I can enjoy life. I am tired of being the fat kid, I have mostly been the fat one my whole life...except for a short time in High School. I hope to meet new friends on here and to get the support. I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes and very high cholesterol but not currently on any medications and I want to avoid going on any. I also want to take this weight off to make me a better me and feel better. AND to add to this my hubby has also been recently diagnosed with type II diabetes and also has ashtma so we have to do what is right, which is to lose weight and be healthy for our health and for our kiddos. I have decided to not only lose weight but to be and eat healthy. I I will be a better me!
