Hello. My name is Dyanne.

I am the proud mom of 3 grown children (Brian, Trisha, and Shawn) and Nana to 8 gorgeous grandchildren. My grandchildren are my reason for breathing and becoming more healthy and living a long life. I have 5 granddaughters and 4 grandsons.

I have been widowed twice previously. My 2nd husband died of an overdose in 2002. My 3rd husband died from lung cancer in 2009

In 2008, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. In 2011, I was hospitalized 4 times with extremely high glucose readings (700 and higher).

In 2012, I opted to have weight loss surgery, after seeing a report on Good Morning America about gastric sleeve and gastric bypass being termed "the cure" for type 2 diabetes. After much research, I went to Mexico and had gastric sleeve surgery. It was a success. At the end of my 1st year post-op, I had lost 70 lbs and 8 pant sizes.

During my second year post op, my weight begun to creep up. 1 lb here, 1 lb there. I am a food addict. This is how it begins.

I workout nearly every day. 45-60 minutes on the elliptical trainer, or walking on the treadmill.

2017 Update: I met my goal weight of 120 in May 2016. However, I've gained back 30lbs. I still workout 3-5 times a week. My diet is back on track. Goal weight - here I Come!!
