After constantly putting off everything, I've decided to go ahead and take the plunge. I am at an all time high of 225 lb. My endocrinologist has already explained to me the importance of getting my weight down as soon as possible. I would love to weigh around 150 lb. That is my target weight according to my doctor. I know I can do this. I have a loving husband and three loving stuffed bears. It will be hard, though, because I am insulin resistant. I will post each of my successes and my battles. I am going to focus on exercise mostly, rather than go on Atkins or such diet. I'll eat the basic healthy foods that my doctor went over with me but exercise is the one thing that will truly make a difference. I can't wait! We are going to WDW the week after Thanksgiving. It will be great to not have to carry around those extra pounds! Bring it on!
