JoAnn's journey

I have been on a weight loss journey for a long time and have lost a lot of weight. I started at 520 lbs but have lost 235 lbs and have kept it off for about 9 years but my diabetes is getting worse and my eating habits are awful and my motivation level is bad too so the scale is going up.

I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 6 years ago and diabetes is all over both sides of my family. I do take insulin and pills with now the doctor is stating that its not working so it's ...
I have been on a weight loss journey for a long time and have lost a lot of weight. I started at 520 lbs but have lost 235 lbs and have kept it off for about 9 years but my diabetes is getting worse and my eating habits are awful and my motivation level is bad too so the scale is going up.

I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 6 years ago and diabetes is all over both sides of my family. I do take insulin and pills with now the doctor is stating that its not working so it's time to make changes or I will surely die soon. I don't want that.

I am raising my grandson now. He is 6 months old and I see myself not being here for him. What would happen to him if I can't take care of him? Scarey thought. So here I am.

I found SparkPeople through a google search for a menu planner. This sounds like it could be the motivation I need.
