Still Fighting!

I had already lost 55 pounds on my own when I started using SparkPeople and have now lost more than 90 pounds! My ultimate goal is 110 pounds weight loss.

I exercise 6-7 days a week for at least an hour. I swim, do Zumba/ClubDance, do cardio, lift weights, run slowly and walk outdoors. I dance whenever possible and love authentic Latin dance.

I have several major health challenges, including five different metabolic diseases...if I can do it, anybody can!

My nutritionist did tell me after strength or yoga I should have something with protein and carbs, and recommended yogurt. I don't know if it helps with my blood sugar, but I do know it makes for a happy belly when I put some food in it right after workout out! lol

My legs are definitely the skinniest part of me, although man, I am jealous of you being almost 6' tall!

And yeah, I'm really waiting quite impatiently to see the endo. Just gotta muddle through the next couple weeks.
