Default Hello

Hi everyone. I'm new here and am very excited. I need something like this to keep me accountable. There are many reasons I want to lose weight:

* I'm pre-diabetic and want to prevent having the disease.
* I have high blood pressure.
* I am too young (33) to feel so old.
* My husband and I are trying to have a baby.

I look forward to all the support and advice I hope to receive!

WELCOME CAROLLYREE!!!

Please do take care of yourself if you're pre-diabetic. My hubby of 23+ yrs is diabetic & it's been rough on him & in turn it's rough on me. Fact is he was in the hospital Wed & Thurs. Unfortunately not the first time either.

Listen to your dr(s). Maybe you'll be able to head off your potential for diabetes. It's really costly if you don't...medications, testing supplies, dr appts, hospital stays & just the major impact it can have on your health.

Both an uncle & my god-father loss their legs from diabetes complications. They did not take care of themselves. It made it hard to watch, because they slowly killed themselves with sugary/unhealthy diets.

You have reasons to give this your best effort: your hubby & the child(ren) in your future. GOOD LUCK!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!! I have already added you to my buddy list. If you have any questions/concerns...ask. I'm not a diabetic but I've lived with one for a long time.

Thanks Mrs.TryingAgain. My doctor just put me on Metformin as a precautionary measure. I sure don't want to have to live my life in and out of the hospital, especially if it could've been prevented. Your support is appreciated!

Hi,

Welcome, I am new as well. I'm 33, pre-diabetic, and plan to start a family around this time next year. Good luck in your journey and feel free to reach out to me if I can be of any support
