My name is Barb I am 59 and have a son that is 25, I love this place because it has the tools that will get and keep me healthy. I Actually started Feb 9, 2009 weighing 400.4 I weigh in on Tuesdays. I lost some and then gained up to 410. I totally quit dieting and started a my own method of eating. You can find it on facebook (
ThePlate?ref=tn_tnmn) I don't use the containers much now. But I am still losing without going without the things I love.

I use to tell my doctor that I was addicted to sugar. I tried to get into groups for addicts. I tried everything I could to quit but I just couldn't. I ate sugar and white food all the time. Huge bowls of potatoes, or rice. I loved to nuke a container of ice cream and eat it in one setting. The only veggie I liked was cauliflower and then fried in margarine. I would eat till I was full and eat some more. Then my doctor told me I had tipped the Diabetic scale. My blood sugar was above 200. Something about that day turned me around. Probably fear of needles. My doctor says I probably will never need insulin but I don't want to take any chances. So, I got on the net and researched diabetes. I found two sites that I use to go to everyday. This one of course and

I don't come here much any more because I don't like to surround my life with the thought of losing weight. But I do miss you guys, especially RedBubbles. You have been a real trouper. Hang in there lady.

    Hi Barb, I seen your post on the People with Disabilities Team and I wanted to drop by and say hello. Despite the fact that I found this team awhile back, September hasn't been one of my best months for socializing due to some new physical problems that had to be dealt with, but I hope to improve on that during the next few weeks. I hope that I get to know you better on the message board, and enjoy the remainder of your weekend! Cindy
