In March of 2006 diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. 5 years prior to this, my Dr. told me that I was in the pre-diabetes stage. I didn't take him serious, so 2 months later (May 2006) after he gave me the bad news, I joined Weight Watchers. I have known several people who have joined WW and were always successful on the program. I never was interested in joining because you had to weigh in each week and pay money. I thought I could do lose weight by myself, but obviously that didn't work.
Thanks to Caroline Shuggart for her drive and energy in implementing a variety of healthy programs for us to participate in. We are now a much healthier campus.
