Default We can be LOSERS together

Hi everyone. I am a 19 year old college student living in Nashville, but I am originally from eastern Alabama. I need to lose those last 5 pounds multiplied by 3 in order to reach my summer goal. Since I don't have a scale in my room...thank the heavens above...I could possibly weigh anywhere from 138 to 133 pounds. (Since I have been back at school the mashed potatoes with gravy are calling my name.) I will take the average and say that I currently weigh about 135 I am determined and dedicated. My only problem is getting and staying motivated. If anyone is interested, please reply...We can be LOSERS together

I guess it just slipped my mind to add that I am also a juvenile diabetic. I have had diabetes since 1993. It will be 11 years in June.

Welcome billinar!!! I have type 1 diabetes too. I've had it since I was 8 and now I'm 32. Your health is so important, just like you are!
How many shots do you take a day? (I'm sure you know that your blood sugars can be affected by carrying around too much weight. Which is one reason I will lose these extra pounds!)

I have taken 2 shots a day since I have been diagnosed. However, I check my blood sugar, on average, 7-8 times a day. The stress this semster is getting to me. My exercise is limited because of the lack of extra, extra time. I try to take the stairs or walk the hills on campus. My eating habits aren't the best either...but that is about to change.
