I was placed on medication for Type2 Diabetes and the doc told me to lose weight. I wasn't given a diagnosis as such as I need to go back and have my sugar checked again. Looking back, I may have always had a slight problem but now, with additional weight, my body has more than it can cope with.

I WAS going Weight Watcher's and this is a good program. However, not being a communal, group type person, I decided to quit going to meetings and to do things on my own. A friend asked if I was moping.. NO!! I'm better at doing most everything on my own.

I've started cooking too after finding a series of healthful recipes. I love HUMMUS and eat that for meals sometimes--ok alot of times. I make it lowfat-not NO fat because a little Tahini and olive oil is good for a person. I eat it with LowFat Triscuits which in combination with hummus is good protein and good fiber (believe me!) I'm trying this high fiber/low meat approach. Makes me feel more full. I've started using more olive oil in cooking which can satisfy that urge for fats in the diet.

I started out at 250 last June and that was the BOTTOM of the barrel as far as I'm concerned and it's not just the scale. It's how I feel when out walking around carrying a whole 'nuther person with me as I go.

We're all on this journey together so off we goooo.....
