Low carb, diabetes, 55 yo need to lose 75lb

Hi Everyone, I have a crazy sweet tooth and I’ve been overweight for too many decades of my 55 years of this life, God has given me. I live and struggle with fibromyalgia & arthritis pain. I’m hoping to find a community I can encourage and be encouraged by.
My plan is to count calories, consume less carbohydrates, less processed foods and move more.

    Hi, Michele. :) We have similar stats & issues. I have used MFP for many years and had a lot of success, but am trying to buckle down again after a couple of difficult years. I will PM you.
