I'm looking for friends, other people who know what it is to struggle with life and the way it affects weight loss. Losing weight is easier, it seems, when you have others who understand because they, too, are going through the same problems. I'm looking for support in my efforts to slim down and hope to support others as well.

As you can see from the pic on this page, I was once 436 pounds. Perhaps at one time I weighed more. I don't know. I just know that was the highest my weight ever was when I was weighed by a doctor. Worst of all, I had become diabetic. That was not something I had expected. But, I am glad to say, with the loss of weight was also the loss of the diabetes. I am proof that you CAN beat Type-2 Diabetes.

For the last few years I have been regaining and losing the same 50 pounds. 50 pounds!?!? That is insane. It's time for me to take back my life, to lose that weight plus more, and to keep it off!

My Goals:
My goal is to become healthier, to lose more weight and finally get off this plateau where I have found myself for years. After regaining 50 pounds of what I had lost from my highest weight of 436, I decided it was time to become serious.


My Program:
Healthy eating and exercise. That is my program.



Personal Information:
My name is Jane, and I'm from Athens, TN. I have a BA in history. I currently work 3rd shift in an office for a distribution center for Kroger. I've been in a relationship with a wonderful man for 3 years now, but we unfortunately live 2 hours apart and have limited time together, Thank God for cell phones!


Other Information:
Having grown up in the South, I grew up with that wonderful Southern cooking, much of it fried, from my Mom, and Greek and Italian cooking from my Uncle George.
