I have been overweight for many years but after going to youngest sons college graduation he came over to me and told me, "Mom, you can't walk, you can't breathe, go home and do something or I won't have you for long" Needless to say this sparked me along so sparkpeople is a great name to me.. I also met a friend after 42 years whose comment was " I can't believe how you have let yourself go" that also got me moving... I joined a gym, ladies, started to try to eat right but am a definate emotional eater... So I have done well but not good enough..the overweight has caused heart problems, blood pressure problems and diabetes... so yes, son, you and friend saved my life, literally... I look forward to doing sparkpeople and finishing this job... it is never too late.. I am 65 years old and still have a lot left... I list ten pounds as I am doing this in increments but it is actually 30/35... thanks Sparkpeople...

    well, I think this may be the way it goes.
    I love Spark people for sure... I tell everyone
    about it since the articles are so informative
    and helpful. I am traveling right now so this
    is difficult but I really know things can be done
    if I WANT to... really want to... it is such a mind
    thing really...
    anyway we leave Montana on Friday the 12th for
    a trip across country.. will settle on Cape Cod or
    upstate New York, not sure yet.. when I arrive I will
    want to get "real" about this and get those last pounds
    off... like thirty five of them... this still will not make me
    skinny,,,, smile... but a "healthy" weight. I do hope to be
    able "talk" with you all more.. love also Real Age and the
    articles there also but my first and foremost is Sparkpeople.
    have a great weekend... hope you are not in the "hurricane
    alley" emoticon

    Hi Luckystars
    I was reading your comment on GI foods and noticed that we had some things in common. You are about my age. Like me you want to lose weight and are losing weight.. You have Diabetes (treated with exercise and diet) and High Blood Pressure. You have grown up children. I am just learning about how to live with Diabetes and about GI foods. Maybe we can help each other.
