I am a diabetic that has struggled with obesity for several years. I tried everything to lose the weight and balance out my insulin levels. I went to Weight Watchers, Nutri-System, Jenny Craig, all the big names in weight loss. Nothing worked. I just couldn't seem to learn the portion control/calorie counting aspect of my diet. One day I was in the doctor's office and he told me that I had gained another 17 pounds since my last quarterly visit. I was up to 312 at that point, which put me at high risk for many ailments such as heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Needless to say I was terribly vexxed. I had always kept my doctor in the loop about my diet, and I just didn't understand, with all of the diet programs I had been doing, why wasn't I losing the weight. So my doctor, we'll just call him DR. M, told me that he was going to do some of his own research into finding me a diet that would work for diabetics. I didn't think much of it at the time, having tried several other programs with no results. So one day Dr. M calls and says he may have found a program that could work for me. I thought, "Oh great, here we go...". Dr. M tells me I have to try this program called, "Balance for Life". After alot of consideration I decided to give it a try. When I spoke to the representative about the program I was amazed. It was based on the "ZONE DIET" which works well for diabetics like myself because it actually balances out insulin levels in the body. After I saw the menu I was surprised to find how delicious the meals sounded. They delivered the food to me fresh daily. I thought, "This is great", not only do I not have to count calories, but I don't have to cook. After tasting the food, I was hooked. To make a long story short, I've lost 93lbs to date, I feel great, and I have been winning my battle with diabeties. So it just goes to show, if you eat right, everything else will fall into place.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
