Hello, my name is Theresa. I have had Type 1 Diabetes for 35 years. I have been overweight for the past nine years. I have never lost the weight I gained after the birth of my third child. The weight is coming off very slowly. I found this group and was hoping to learn from some of you what has worked for you. Best wishes to all. emoticon

Welcome to the team. emoticon
I just turned 50 in November, and have had Type 1 since I was 17. It's been a long journey, and I thank God for the capability of sharing thoughts, and knowledge on forums like SP. It didn't exist when I was young and struggling.
Weight was never my problem, even after the birth of 2 healthy sons, but then my body attacked my thyroid and I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in 2002. That has been an even harder journey. And, it packed 50+ pounds on me. I cannot seem to rid myself of it, but I find good support here, and have learned much.
Read the forums, learn from the others who share similar journeys, and you will find out more at times than doctors will tell you. With the support here, you will find much encouragement. Stay tough! You can do it.

Oh, that 50-yr-mark was hard on my waisteline too! I'm now 62 and am getting a handle on it. Less carbs, more protein, tons of water, and probiotics are what help me. Hang in there!

Hi I have had diabetes for 20 years. I use a pump and have about +50 pounds to loose. I have gained and lost weight over the years but since I hit 50 I only watch the scale go up. I am flabby, out of shape and can be unmotivated. I am hoping that sp will help.

I will do this!
