I have struggled with my weight for the past 15 years after a divorce, nursing school and it continued through schooling to get my Master degree. I have tried every diet there s and do lose weight but never under 230 pounds.  Before I was not worried I was okay being a big girl, but 2 years agoI started having blood pressure issues and a year ago became diabetic, so I knew my weight is now a serious issue.
