"I'm a 36 year old attorney, diabetic, married a year, and if I don't lose weight I'll probably die very early. I'm having a hard time with motivation since dieting and trying to lose weight has been my hobby since I was a kid. I just saw my doctor and he gave me a meal plan which I am going to need a LOT of encouragement to do, since I have failed at it before. Part of me wants to give up, but the majority of me does not want to die like my father did of diabetes, so I guess I'll do ...

I wrote that on 4/10/07, when I started on Spark. When I went to that doctor appointment I tipped the scale at 285 - not a number I'm proud of, and one that I disclose here only. I'm 42 now, and I realize that I have to do this to be healthy.

I've changed lots in my life since then.... lost 100 pounds, getting divorced, starting a new business, and learning lots at 42 years old. This is just the beginning, and I feel free to do what I have to!

Why do you think I'm doing this, my health? actually, YES!!!

To be under 200 pounds - whenever I get there, and never to return!!!!!

To run a mile non-stop - the first and only time I ever did it was when I was 23 - the day before I got into the car accident which led to major weight gain and put me over 200 the first time in my life!

My Program:
Do some kind of exercise only on the days I eat (duh - that's every day!)

Log on to Spark each day to keep my motivation up!

Dear Lord, please do not let the light at the end of the tunnel be a train!!

It is sooooo cool to see my "ticker lady running" more than halfway across the ticker!

Thanks for the comment on my sparkpage..... getting off the meds is really hard. Your progress looks great! Keep up the good work.
I've also done a meal plan with my doctor. I'm finding sparkpeople to be a fantastic aid in keeping up with my food and exercise.
