Default Hello, Everyone!!

Hello, folks!!!

Found this group today and thought, oh my gosh, how nice!!

Both myself and my husband have recently started our weightloss journey. Three weeks ago I was called by my doctor and was told that I needed to come in. In short, I'm now considered a type 2 diabetic, my cholesterol was up, my vitamin D was severely low.... just in short, I was unhealthy.

I had become much too comfortable in my own body, and it was showing.

That Friday on the way home I met up with my husband at a Planet Fitness gym and we took a tour. I signed up, and have been going every since. This week starts our third week! I've lost 7-10 lbs at this point, and my husband has lost 15. We spend 30 minutes on cardio, and 30 on weights, and we've entirely changed the way that we eat.

I know we can do this, we have to. I've come here for support on the days I just want to quit, and to offer my support to others that are struggling. So here's to seeing those numbers fall!

Oh, my husband and I have had to change everything in our house too!!! You'll do great with the support, and being on these forums help too

I don't want to gibe false hope or anything, but I've read people on these forums who have managed to control their diabetes with their weight loss and lifestyle change (not sure if its type 1 or 2 though). Poke around the forums!

Welcome and congratulations, it's nice to hear from an enthusiastic person already started with a great plan!

Welcome!! i know its not always easy, and we will all struggle. You sound like a take charge person. I really admire that you went out and started making healthy changes so quickly. We're all here for those days that are harder than others

Good job! I wish I could get to the gym with my husband, I think doing this together would be great. I am glad you have that support.

Welcome, Thats so great that you have someone to lose weight with. My mom and I are both losing weight together. My mom is almost at goal. She started her weight loss journey before I did.
