As a challenge for Health Seeker, a Facebook application for diabetics, I am seeking a weight loss buddy.
As a bit of personal history, I am 41 years old, diagnosed with Type 1 38 years ago. I take multiple injections daily, but hope to go on a pump soon. I am 5'9" and at my heaviest was 193 pounds. Around 185 has been my norm the past couple years. I used to drink a lot of beer, and dropped to 175 in 6 weeks just by quitting drinking.
I'd like to get below 160. I think a weight loss buddy would help in that regard, and perhaps even be an online support for other areas of our diabetes. I don't know exactly what being an "online weight loss buddy" would entail, but anyone interested can contact me and we discuss our individual goals.
