I am 46 years old and have been overweight all of my life. I weighed about 380 lbs at my heaviest. I had lost about 30 lbs on and off over the years and fluctuated around 350 lbs for several years. Recently, two dear friends/ classmates died due to health reasons complicated by weight issues. This has been such a major loss. However, my biggest wake up call happened on February 13, 2015. I almost collapsed in front of the building where I work. My blood sugar was out of control. I knew I must change my life! My Valentine's Day gift to myself was to join SparkPeople. Since then I have lost additional weight, but just as importantly I am learning so much. I am feeling stronger and becoming healthier every day!
