Who ever thought that when I went on line and googled "free weight loss sites" that I would have found such a wonderful site. I feel as though I have made hundreds of new friends that support each other. The information here the camaraderie, the support and the networking is just phenomenal, I had very little hope that my life had much more quality to it. I figured I would continue to gain, end up not being able to walk, being one of those people who have to use the ride on cart to go through the stores. I pictured myself in the not so distant future unable to work, on disability, probably unable to drive and a burden on my family. This all sounds so hopeless and depressing but the first time I got on the scale and saw that there was a way to get this weight moving down the hope came back. Thank You to all my new friends. Thank You to Annette and Janet the leaders for Managing Diabetes 50+ 50+and Thank You to the Spark people for making this site.

    I do have a question for you...I read that your husband did not support did you fix that problem. My other half is constantly bringing me treats....Hello sugar....I keep telling him not to, but he does.....and of course, then I eat them. :(
