I've struggled with my weight my whole life. It's been a constant up and down battle, though I can honestly say it's mostly been up - my weight, that is. I think I was actually thin for a year or two, but then the pounds just kept creeping back in again.

About six years ago I joined Curves. I worked out three times a week and followed their low carb diet religiously. I dropped 50 pounds and was really proud of myself. Then I lost my motivation to keep on track after a series of devastating emotional blows. The weight came back - and then some.

I was diagnosed with diabetes about a year or so ago and I've started developing diabetic neuropathy in my feet. The podiatrist told me I've got to get up and get moving, drop some of this weight and get my diabetes under control or I will lose my feet. It's taken me a year to get motivated again, even with that prognosis, but here I am.

I want to be healthy again. I want to keep my feet and get my blood sugar under control. I want to not be the fattest one in the family, or the fattest one when I go out with my friends. I want to see my children have children and be part of their lives and I want to grow old with my husband.

I'm done being the fat girl.
