I can totally relate, frenchie! I'm 53 & have a similar story having been overweight as a child, struggled with sugar issues on & off but able to more easily maintain my weight after having kids & until a few years ago. I'm blaming menopause, but since then its been so much more of a struggle with many ups & downs, both on the scale & with sugar. This web site has helped tremendously -- logging my food & exercise, journaling, & connecting with others here. The support here has been great! Send me a friend request if you're interested in staying in touch & good luck to you!
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
