    I Know The Feeling.

    Five years ago I was diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic. I was so pissed off! No one in my family had the disease, so how the hell did I get it? Well, after taking the Diabetes Education course through my local hospital, I found out. My weight was the primary cause. It took a couple...

    I've been eating clean

    and exercising regularly for two months now and I'm still far from my goal weight. However, minimal changes in my body are happening. It bums me that this process is so difficult and really slow but I won't let that stop me from reaching my goal weight. I can do this! Yeah!!!!

    I have to lose 23 pounds to get to my goal weight. I've weighed-in at 169lbs. and I am shooting for 146lbs. My next weigh-in will be on July 10! I plan to do this through working out on my Bowflex, jogging, and eating less refined flour and consuming more protein.
