I saw your advertising in the "All You Magazine", it was very inspring to see that there is an actual place where I can express myself, and have people communicate and hopefully what I am looking for is "movtivation". I have been a diabetic since 1984, and I have had to learn everything on my own and through reading. Many times I have been frausted, but I need help now in losing weight, it is so hard.

Welcome to DiabetesSisters - This is a great place to bounce your thoughts and questions. I am also trying to lose weight. I will be traveling over Thanksgiving but am joining a local club as soon as I get back. Hopefully this will help keep me focused during the holidays, while also enjoying myself! :lol: Fingers are crossed anyway.

Wow, thanks for the message. I have tried so hard, I don't eat much. My food is all Spanish food, so it is hard to buy things and make my husband one meal and me the other. I have stayed at 192 for the last two years, and just can't seemed to make it come down.

Yes, it is hard to do. I am actually making two meals more often now for dinner as well, recently I was diagnosed with celiacs and trying to figure out that diet. However, before I would have my husband and son eat what I was eating often just in different amounts.

I think part of my weight issue is related to my thyroid which has been really out of whack. My next doctors appt is in early december, so I am ready to see how that is doing these days.

I do better exercising if I have paid for something and have to go or "lose" the money. So, it is my hope in joining the gym that it will help motivate me on those days I don't feel like it. Who knows? We will see! Charge.... :silly:

We have a fitness center here at work and of which I already belong to, but it is so hard to get motivated and go back to it. I even ask my co-employee to help me and if she motivated me and I lost the pounds I want to loose, I would give her $200.00 but it did not work. I know I have to do it, but as long as I don't have someone pushing me, calling me, and on top of me, I won't do it. My husband has never ever said one word regarding my body, he respects me, and I think that is why I dont' move it. Health, yes I have to. I have 70% liver damage and no one told me, I had myself tested.
