Hi everyone! My name is Darlene, and I joined Sparkpeople on Monday March 5th after a visit to my doctor. It was her that actually suggested this website. My visit showed that I am morbidly obese and that I might be insulin resistant. I am still waiting on the results. I weighed 294 pounds at the doctor. I couldn't believe it. I have never been this heavy. I can remember thinking 140 pounds was fat 20 years ago. I have considered surgery, but I am going to try to do this as a last option. I have a very long way to go and need all the support I can get. I am easily depressed and very impatient, but I am going to give it my all. Wish me luck!
