I am 56 years old and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in May of this year. Trying to control it with diet and exercise and so far so good. I live in Atlanta and have been married for 3 years now to a wonderful guy. I also have 2 grown sons from my previous marriage and expecting my first grandchild in March of 2015.

Update: Time sure flies. Just celebrated my 58th birthday, I have a beautiful one year old granddaughter and still very happily married. I think I'm finally getting a handle on my weight. After my A1c just kept going higher my Dr. recommended I try Atkins. Best thing I've ever done. My wonderful husband is totally on board with me (he has done it before) and keeps me on track. I feel better then ever, more energy, blood sugar is excellent, cravings are gone. 5 weeks in now and doing fantastic. It's not always easy but with the two support groups I have joined and the help of my husband I'm starting a new way of life and a new way of eating.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Doctor appointments always cause me anxiety. I hope your dermatologist reports come back good. Will pray for your eyesight and swelling. Hang in there. Sometimes day by day is to hard and you have to live life moment by moment.
