Comment from: lisa w, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 30

I have always been over weight and all the fad diets that I tried never worked. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after I had my only child and 26 years later still have it. In 2008 I received a gift from God and lost 120 pounds. Before the weight loss, I was 342 lbs.
