hi, My name is Vicki, I just joined CK a couple weeks ago and I really like it. I am a diabetic and am overweight,like most people, and my dr. wants me to lose weight, of course he is skinny, so that I can get off the insulin that I take. I would LOVE to lose the weight, but I know its not going to happen overnight. Anyway back to telling you about myself. I have 4 children, ages 26,27,28,and 35. Between all my children they havegiven me 6.5 grandchildren. The .5 is due in September. That will give us 3 boys and 3 girls. I enjoy reading, and just recently picked up embroidery again(did it when I was younger). I listen to Country music and some 80's stuff, there are too many TV shows that we watch to list them all. My favorites are Army Wives, Rizzoli and Issles, and Lost Girl. Thats about it.
Before joining CK I was in another on-line program, but it didnt count carbs. Since joining these programs at the beginning of the month I have lost about 20 pounds. I go see my dr next week and I cant wait to get on the scales, usually I shy away from them.
Let youy all know my progress. :hi:

Hi Vicky, nice to meet you. Sounds like you've done a great job of raising your kids. Now is your time to sit back and enjoy the grandkids.

What kind of embroidery do you do? Counted cross-stitch is the only type I can manage, but I rarely find time to doit anymore.

Congratulations on the progress already! You just need to keep that momentum up.

Hi Vicki,
welcome, my name is LeNie my nickname is NeeNee, I am also diabetic type two, I have been for almost ten yrs and I have of course been obese for a long time, although I am really really aggressively working on it, something that I have only done in spurts, this time I plan to do this for the rest of my life. I am thrilled you are here, this is a great program and the C.K has so many things to help you along with support and calorie counting, I really love it, please remain in contact, the people on the boards are very nice and helpful.

Good Luck, you will do it, so far you are doing really well 20 pounds is good

I do the regular kind of embroidery. Ive bought iron on patterns and have used them. In fact I just recently finished the front of a baby blanket for my new grandson that will be born in Septmber. I also have printed pictures off the internet and traced them on fabric and embroidered them. My fiancee told me that imneeded a hobby so I didnt spend so much time on the computer. So I started buying embroidery stuff and now it is all over the house. I chose this hobby because if Im working on it then Im not eating. Good thinking huh?

I LOVE that your hobby is taking the place of eating. That's brilliant. And it'd be impossible to eat and embroider, you wouldn't want it to get messy. I've wanted to learn to knit for a few years now, you've given me the spark of inspiration I need to DO it. :)

Hi how are things with you? THings are pretty good with me. My diabetes is under control and Im loosing weight and those are 2 +'s. I have lost 29 pounds and have dropped a size in my clothes. Gets me pretty excited when my shorts and my underware are falling off my butt. Ok so maybe not at that stage yet,but a woman can dream right. Hope to hear good news from you soon.

Great job 29 pounds is fantastic! I am happy that I am finally out of the 230s, I am today 229.4 and boy was that thrilling, it is really BEST to aim for small goals, than get frustrated over the larger numbers to lose. Now, the goal is to get out of the 220s. It took almost 2 months to get out of the 230s so I am thinking by the end of August I should be close. I may take up sewing or a hobby like that too, its a good idea

Well down to 224 so its coming off, thinking of doing Atkins to kick 15 pounds off in 2 weeks, but I dont know its pretty rigorous
