Talking New here

I am new to the forum. My name is Ezra Braden. I joined this site to track my calorie intake daily and I love it. At my heaviest I weighed in at 398lbs. I went down to 352lbs. after loosing insurance and not being able to treat my Type 2 Diabetes. I recently acquired insurance again and am proud to announce that instead of my sugar levels being in the 400 range they are not higher than 150 anymore. I also decided to make a change for a healthier life and today day 28 of my journey I am 335lbs. I have done this with diet and exercise. I created a website and blog Team-GetFit.com where I post daily and also hope to inspire others to take action to become healthier. I added a forum to share journeys and inspiration. Thats all for now!!

First let me say thanks for the kind words and TOGETHER we ALL can do it! As I often tell people being 300 plus pounds I need to workout in order to be able to workout. So I started with DVDs low impact of course. I use medium and heavy resistance bands and have just recently purchased an exercise bike, again with low impact to my joints and knees. I have stopped eating 1500+ calorie MEALS !!! thats been a big help. You can follow my story and join my support group at Team-GetFit.com !! Its free so register and come get inspired. I also started my own forum there for support and inspiration (which is also the key to my success) its so hard to do it alone and I hope to inspire others to share their stories and information on my forum! Thnaks again!

Ezra
