Sounds like you know what needs to happen. I agree that the key is in a religious and honest use of the Fitness and Nutrition Trackers to meet your goals. They are what worked for me. I have eliminated all Diabetes meds and have a 5.0 a1c for the last three years and have greatly reduced or eliminated Arthritis and joint pain, neuropathy, depression, vision problems, and have greatly increased my mobility, etc. Welcome to SparkPeople!

Welcome to Sparkpeople so glad you have joined us.

I have looked at your Sparkpage - thanks for putting a little about who you are and where you are at with losing some weight.

I see you have joined a group - good job. Participate as often as you can as that is where you will be encouraged and motivated.

Suggestion is to do a search for other groups that might interest you - when you have one or two that do, you will find that participation helps - it seems that those that do participate seem to have the better results.

With multiple health issues, including weight that blew up with the type of chemo I was on for leukemia (cured now), diabetes, neuropathy, dysautonomia/POTS, degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, seizures, and degenerative joint disease (to which the rheumatologist said, as did 2 orthopedic surgeons, that I'm not a candidate for joint replacement since I've had lung blood clots), I need to dump the lard. I finally got a referral with a dietician that I'm looking forward to, to increase my working knowledge. But I'm not one who relies on others (I'm an RN since 1985, though disabled for many years), and want to be proactive, so am keeping track of what I eat so I have a better idea of what to tell the dietician. Lifelong weight issues- real or imagined- and find that the record keeping is essential.

Anyway, that's what I'm doing here !
