I am 245 pounds at 5 feet 4-1/2 inches. 

My BMI is very scary. I am borderline diabetic and in the beginning stages of lupus. I have to lose the weight because it affects my lupus symptoms.

 I am tired all the time and need to eat healthier and learn a better lifestyle for myself. 

I do not want to die young like my dad and his brother. 

I know I will do this with encouraging people around me. 

My family is behind me 100 percent. My goal is to be under 200 and possibly lose 50 pounds. Thank you again for consideration.
