I want to lose enough weight to control my type 2 diabetes with diet and exercise only.
I want to lose a total of 130 pounds.
I want to increase my self esteem and self confidence.
I want to exercise at least 4 days a week.
I am working on cutting way back on carbs, eating lots of veggies and some fruits. I dont want to go hog wild on a strict very low carb diet....I dont do well with such strict rules!
My name is Julie and I have 2 great kids. I have had type 2 diabetes for a few years. I am a nursing student working towards my doctorate in the hopes that I will be a nurse practitioner one day. I need to lose this weight so that I am taken seriously by my future patients. I want to be a role model to them.
I'm so sorry you lost your husband also. It was a traumatic experience for me...and this past year my sister lost her husband also. I would like to know what the heck is going on??? Wishing you the best of luck. Hope we will get to know each other better :)
