Members profiles:
41 years old, based in Washington DC, work as a writer/editor for an education non-profit. I've been overweight my whole life, with the exception of two blocks of 3-4 years when I successfully lost weight and managed to stay on a healthy eating/exercise plan. I have problems with night eating, fast food, emotional eating. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in March and have lost 22 pounds since. Need to lose many, many more. Although my glucose levels get better every week, I'm still unsure sometimes what I should be eating.

I'm 26, weigh 344 lbs., am pre-diabetic, and have hypothyroidism. I don't want to die young, and I'm tired of not being able to do anything. Time to take some action!!!
