"God gave us the Gift of Life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well." Voltaire

What a freedom I have once again to take charge of my life and to dedicate it to the Glory of God!

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service." -- Rom 12:1

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." -- Rom 12:2

    Thanks for the reply about your weight loss. I eat about 1200-1400 calories a day and burn about 2400. It has seemed to just take it off the past couple of weeks. I'll be checking sodium and carbs. I typically don't have very much of that.

    TO PENWILLIAMS: Have you had your Diabetes Education through your doctor as yet? It helped me tremendously to arrive at understanding all of this and to be encouraged by those in the class.

    For me carbs was the hardest to learn about. And I'm still learning. It's ongoing.

    Hang in there! It is hard at times, but worth the trouble as you see the results. emoticon
