Thumbs up New to the beach. . .

My name is Shannon. I am a stay at home mom of three. I have been married for almost 14 years. I am 32. I was diagnosed with Still's Disease (a form of RA) in 1999. I have not been able to do to much because of my illness. The medication that I am on has not helped my weight problem at all. I started out at 180 and am currently at 217. I had gotten up as far as 230. Last year I joined another weight group and lost down to 207. Over the holidays and a flare in my illness I have gained back 10 lbs. A friend suggested I try SBD. So here I am. I read the info and thought it would help my husband as well. We just found out that his dad was just diagnosed with Type 2 Diabites. We are both scared that he will get it. We started on Monday. So far so good. I am not sure about a few things but I hope to get to know some of you and use this forum to answer our questions. Thank you for all your help.

Welcoem to the Beach, Shannon and her DH. I am type II diabetic like your FIL and have completely normalized my blood glucose on this diet! My doctor is amazed and delighted!
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Welcome to the Beach, Shannon!

I'm type 2 as well and since starting this diet 2.5 weeks ago I've been able to cut out my meds.

Wink Thank you I feel welcomed. . .

Thank you to everybody that welcomed me. I have really been enjoying all you posts. Every time my husband asks a question and I don't have the answer I come here. He seems to think we need to follow the menus exactly. Well I don't have that much money to buy fish for every dinner menu. I will post my questions in the FAQ section. Shannon

Shannon -
Welcome to the beach! I just finished my first two weeks and reached the first mini-goal I ever set in my life. While, yes, I am bragging a little, I say this because I really don't think I could have done it without this forum. Everyone here is so supportive and quick to answer any of your questions!

Good luck to you and the DH!

Mini-goals of 2 pounds a week:
193 by Thanksgiving
183 by The Holidays
150 by Jamaica!
