Nothing feels so good.... as Peace feels.

I started on Spark in September 2011. I had good success for about a year, then I struggled with up/down, up/down. I lost 100# when I was 60, then gained it all back, the lost 100# when I was about 70 - and now have gained it all back. I really want to be healthy, but sweets are like cocaine I guess... One bite and I'm off into a pit. God has amazingly kept me healthy despite the abuse I have done to my body.

So here we are in late 2015 and I am miserable, can't bend over to ...

So here we are in late 2015 and I am miserable, can't bend over to put on socks without feeling miserable! Starting again 11/5/15. Getting old and getting fat again has been miserable.

I'm thanking God for His strength, His leading, and His protection through all my ups and downs.

I added you as a Spark Friend, I have been up and down the scale all of my life since high school. I am 64 and my sister is 73. I was born on her ninth birthday.

I invite you to join Reversing Diabetes group on Facebook if you go there. I have learned so much there about diabetes and what works. I just am too late, maybe, but I do believe God is Sovereign in all things and maybe this is what it took to make me quit cheating with sugar.

I have been one that has generally had to learn from the School of Hard Knocks.

Thank you for the information, God bless you!
