This is an update. I talk about what has given me inspiration and motivation (see links below) for weight loss. I have been following a "mostly" raw food diet and tomorrow will start a beginner's crossfit exercise program. I used to weigh 280 pounds and am currenly in the 170's, working to my next goal.
I have type 2 diabetes with bad insulin resistance and have been told I probably have pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome). I used to take insulin and have been able to stop that. I also had really high blood pressure, and it now runs low.
I am working towards improving my health, gaining better fitness, learning better nutrition so I can reach my goals fast.
