Talking Newbie from Kentucky

Hi, my name is Gabriele, I am 57 years old with type 2 diabetes, high bloodpressure and the need to lose 50 pounds. I have started so many times to lose the weight, but never been able to follow through. My downfall are bread, cakes and sugar. I am on three diabetes meds, and I HAVE to make a change. I am new here and hope you all can help me get serious about the weight loss this time.

Welcome Gabriele! My doctor says I'm pre-diabetic. I'm 52 and currently at 310 lbs. I'm hoping to get to 275 by my birthday on August 22nd. It's doable but difficult.

Good luck to you on your journey to better health.

thank you for your reply, Donovan? I wish you the best of luck and effort on your weightloss; maybe we can update each other as we drop the pounds.
