I have been struggling. But I refuse to give up. I found SP back in 2007, after I'd been diagnosed with diabetes. I lost 20 pounds that I've basically kept off for that entire time.

But 20 is not enough. Not nearly. In fact, over time, my diabetes continued to progress despite my minor weight loss.

I am here to face the truth that I am a food junkie and a sugar addict.

And I am here to get my diabetes under control. This is perhaps my greatest challenge. I am watching diabetes affect me. I have no insurance. SP may be my only chance to survive this horrible condition.

If today is the first day of the rest of my life, let me get my life moving now.

I will need help. I am a most intransigent soul, it seems. But I'm here, and I'm trying. Wish me luck, fellow travelers.
