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.
