Hello!

I'm 56, widowed, no children, live in Columbus, Ohio with my dog, Tucker, the love of my life.

I've struggled with my weight since about 2000 and at my lowest, got down to about 140, only to gain it all back. It's the eternal seesaw!

I have been around Sparkpeople more years than I care to remember, most years I have been on a team. I like the feeling of camraderie that a team offers.

Hi. My name is Nicole, and I am new to the Purple Biggest Loser Team. I was reading your ABC's and saw that we both have mixed breed dogs named Tucker! My Tucker is a lab mix and he is roughly 11 years old. He is a rescue, so we don't know his exact age. I was looking at your page and saw that we have even more than that in common. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes last month, and it has lit a fire under me, as well. I am extremely needlephobic, so the doctor gave me three months to lower my numbers before making me start to test my blood sugar at home. I have started counting carbs, though I am not consistent enough. I fear that I will not bring my numbers down enough, though I am certainly trying. I hope to get to know you better over the next 10 weeks.

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that's strength." Gandhi

As we head into the final weeks of the challenge, use your challenges to create your strengths. We can do this together!
