Atlanta, GA

I just joined CK yesterday. On my 53rd birthday in May my M.D. called to tell me I was officially an "uncontrolled diabetic"! Started oral meds, started working on my diet carbs vs. proteins but wasn't losing weight. Finally realized I needed to work on calorie control and exercise. Started that on 8/3. I, too, have noticed it is much more difficult to lose weight now than it was 10 years ago! I am determined, at least this week, to make a life time change....one week at a time, lol! Look forward to getting to know you all! :wave1:

Hi and welcome. This forum doesn't get much traffic, I've noticed. I'm sorry you have diabetes. I work with a woman who has had it for 20 years and hasn't taken care of herself. She is now having problems with her eyes and kidneys and other things. She just retired on disibility. I wish you good luck on your weight loss journey. I joined about 2 weeks ago and have lost a few pounds. I was a smoker who quit and gained 35 pounds in the past 2 years. I just can't lose it like I used to be able to do. It's very frustrating. I'm going to keep trying though!:)
