Hi, I'm Karen and I'm overweight. Right now I weigh 248 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.

I have not lost weight but not gained any either. So it is sort of a win. I was gaining before the challenge.
