Talking Hi new here

Can I join you all on this forum??

I posted on the profile thread. Just a mini recap
I am a 40 yo mom of 3. Diagnosed with diabetes a couple of months ago. Without trying I lost about 25 lbs before diagnosis and since diagnosis I have lost another 20. 'Only' another 100 to go. I kind of hate that word 'only'. Makes it sound like such a small amount....lol.

I am motivated, I am determined, and I am happy. I feel so much better than I did a few months ago.

Welcome Cactusmom. It is only 100 lbs. That is probably a better way to look at it then a lot of us do. We tend to think it's such a big huge amount but once you get going and it starts coming off you realize it was only 100 lbs. I'm not trying to make it sound like it's nothing but you will be amazed when you get it off and look back at how quick the time went.

I look forward to seeing you around. Glad you could join us.
