Hi, I'm Karen and I'm overweight. Right now I weigh 250 pounds. I have had diabetes for over 20 years and am trying to control it. I have been overweight a long time. I had bypass surgery and lost weight for about 5 years. But then I had a nervous breakdown and ate to feel better. (REALLY, REALLY dumb I know.) I gained most of the weight back. Now that I am 54 and have good medication to control my diabetes and nerves, I want to get serious about losing the weight again and live longer to see my 3 beautiful granddaughters grow up.

Just diagnosed diabetic
I have been type 2 diabetic for 25 years. I am 54 years old. It runs in my family. The diabetes is one of the main reasons I want to lose weight. Sorry about your diagnosis. Diet and exercise help a lot and some people are able to control it.

It's NOT a Diet
I need a life style change and not a new diet craze.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh on MWF when I go to exercise class. The scales there seem more reliable than the one I have at home.
