ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Husband is diabetic, but is in denial. He refuses to get with the program, although he is not over weight, does not eat healthy even though I'm trying to get him to understand. I also go through periods of depression (like now) when I'm stressed. Thankfully, my children do not have a weight problem and have no problem eating "the good things."
I lost 10lbs in Feb. with diet (sort of Dr. Phil's program) and exercising. I'm doing the "Leslie Sandsome's Walk away the pounds" and up to the two mile walk 5 days a week. So far so good. Just need some extra support every now and then.
