hi all i thought i would start a diary of my weight loss my name is Kim and im 38 im married with three lads. my diet should have really started about 3 years ago July 06 when i had a heart attack i was told to change my lifestyle or i would die very young. as you may have guessed i didn't listen to advice and continued to suffer from angina. after having stents fitted 3 times i finally realized i needed to do something about my life so firstly i cut out the smoking the only problem with that was i ate more and put on more weight (big vicious circle) which then caused me more problems (i found out i was now a diabetic) type 2. Ive struggled with my weight for years but now i feel able to do something about it. for the past year and a half i have had uncontrolled diabetes which has caused problems in its own right. since starting weight watchers on the 25th of may my blood sugars have stabilized and i have lost 25 and a half pounds , i am hoping if i keep this diary it will keep me on the right track.
