Age: 55
Name: Barbara S
Location: Philadelphia, PA

Summary:

I was very sick and didn’t even know it. That slowed me down; I became depressed, stressed a lot and overate. It took me a while to get things together.

I found out I had Type 2 diabetes back in 1995/96. I am currently taking Metformin 1000 mg twice daily. I was also diagnosed with sleep apnea, CHF, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

I recently made some lifestyle changes because of a stay in the hospital. I have very bad eating habits in the past, but now I watch what I eat and do a lot of baking, broiling and grilling.

My financial situation sometimes gets in the way of what I eat, but I do the best I can, and have lost a couple of pounds so far. I hope I can lose a lot more, because I want to live a healthier life.
