At one time I admitted that I weighed 288 lbs. I might have weighed more but was afraid to admit it to even myself. I did have the thought of reaching the Goal of 300 lbs! (Only because I was so close, and I thought it kind of a funny thing to do.) I could not even carry the 288 lbs it hurt so, I had to lose. About 5 times, in the past 30 years, I have gone down to 200.5 lbs, and a year ago I went under 200 lbs to 194 ..but guess what I forgot I had to hold it down there.

I started to lose again, two months before joining Sparks, and I weighed 250 lbs, and I started Sparks at 232 lbs.

I started to lose again, because I am Officially labeled, and am a Diabetic now since 2003, and probably like most, was Diabetic many years before that.

In 2010 - 2020, I was Out Of Control! My sugar numbers were going over 200 most every night. I didn't feel good, but didn't feel that bad either. During these years my weight went as high again as 232. Same old up and down. I've only had a few weeks on and off of being in the sugar range my Doctor wants.

If I want to live, and in one piece, I Have to Change! I am going down once again, once again I am going to try and do good every day.

I Can't wait any longer! (Again)
I want to live Well for the remainder of my years.
I don't want to be FAT any longer.
I want to be a Diabetic in Total Control.
I want to LIVE, and with all the pieces I have now.
I Don't take any medicines, and I don't/won't ever start.

In 2018 and 2020 was even worse that my sugar is WAYYYYYYY out of control and I am determined to get under 200 pounds.. again. Got under just not staying under.
