Started 2017 bedridden with spinal stenosis excruciating pain @260 pounds.
Nothing helped the pain, then I got to thinking. I've had spinal stenosis for years
A result of pounding the pavement delivering the mail for 25 years.
Then the light went off! But, I wasnt over weight then.
So to test my theory I would lose the pounds.
Sure enough I dropped the pounds got under 200 on Thanksgiving 2017.
Haven't had any spinal stenosis pain since!

No excuses, like holdays birthdays anniversaries if I want to live to see more.
Remind myself dailey to stay on track!
Get on board or get out of my way!
This is Serious!

Then September 14, 2017 I found FatSecret, and many supportive people,I weighed 237.
I was hellbent on ending diabetes.
Ironically I learned more on FS than in any doctors office.
Cut my carbs, drank 8-10 glasses of water, ate chicken, fish, shrimp and more chicken!
Am I sick of water, you betcha, do I still drink it yup!
My determination proved successful, I am NO longer a diabetic!
Did I ever waiver, cheat or go off plan, NO!
The way I looked at it dieting is a mindset and theres something to be said about being a Taurus
that stubborness paid off!

My goal is no longer the blue line, my goal is my health!

Update March 29, 2018 I have lost 100 pounds!
I no longer take any medicine I am no longer considered a diabetic. I no longer have high blood pressure I no longer have acid reflux!

You have the mindset and motivation of a winner in my eyes! Carbs always made me hungry so I cut them to 20 grams. Good luck continued success!

Type 2 Diabetes
My dctor referred me to a so called diabetis specialist, I told her I didnt own diabetis and would end it. Her exact words "you can't once you have it you will always have it" Walked out and never went back.
Don't tell me I can't do anything cause I take it as a challenge.
I proved her wrong ended diabetis and high blood pressure. I don't need or take any medications!
