Hi everybody, I'm new to this site. I was shown this site by my daughter LaRaine on my mothers 95th birthday (Jan. 30), so I thought I would give it a try myself.
I've been heavy every since I recovered from polio in 1952, since then I have tried all kinds of different diets to no avail.
In 2001 I was told that I had type 2 diabetes and that I should lose weight. (easier said than done for me now that I was retired). I did manage to go from a starting weight of 315 lbs. to 281 by summer of 2006. In Nov. of 2006 I got sick and was hospitalized for 3 days, I came home and was sick for another month in which time I had lost about 20 lbs. So when I started this weight program I weighed 263, and as of today I'm down to 259. My goal is to be down to 200 by December 30, 2015 While at my daughters in Colorado just two days before Thanksgiving I had a Stroke it effected my speech but I am now able to talk again and Must follow my Diet.
